So it turns out there may be gay characters in Harry Potter after all

I wrote a post after the final Harry Potter book came out speculating about the backlash there would have been from the christian right if JK Rowling had included an openly gay character in her books. Some, of course, choose to read my post as general whinge about a lack of representation, but hey that's their hang up not mine.

Well I guess we are about to find out. And could JK have chosen a more emotive figure to out? Well maybe Harry, but the idea that the strong father figure who had hundreds of children under his wing (and by all accounts was pretty handy in a fight in his day) was a friend of dorothy is going to send some bigots head's spinning.
