Earlier today, a fan from London tweeted the author and questioned "why" the character Dumbledore is gay because she couldn't "see him in that way".

@jk_rowling Thank you so much for writing Harry Potter. I wonder why you said that Dumbledore is a gay because I can't see him in that way.

Not one to shy away from speaking out in support of LGBT rights, Rowling replied:

Thankfully, Rowling's on-point response was received well by the fan, who saw eye to eye with the author.

@jk_rowling amazing answer... Yes you are absolutely right. Such an inspiration!!!


She even had this to add:

@jk_rowling I wish that McGonagall and Dumbledore are couple
