Two lucky Kansas based Harry Potter fans hot the chance to meet author JK Rowling after being selected from a pool of thousands who entered a Scholastic J.K. Rowling Open Book Tour Sweepstakes.
Andy Anderson, a 19-year-old Kansas Uni nerd, and Emily Hughes,a 9 year old little girl child, of Shawnee, were among 1,000 winners who could invite one guest to meet the author of the Harry Potter series, on Oct. 19 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
The Andersons said they got lots of new information and gossip, including the much-talked-about detail about Dumbledore.
"The big breaking news everyone is talking about is Dumbledore is gay," Katherine Anderson said.
She said Rowling said, "Well actually, I've always pictured Dumbledore as a raging queen."
"There was definitely a big applause for that from the members of a passing Gay Pride march," she said, "but there was much more to come"
Katherine Anderson said Rowling read excerpts from the book.
"It was amazing because she did all these cool voices, like she was posessed" she said. "Now every time I read a book, I'm sure I'll hear her voice.Especially her deep phlegmy cough".
"But then she put down what she was reading and ushered us all a little closer and said in a very frail voice: Harry Potter is gay too".
"We were slightly taken aback but there was more", continued Katherine, "she then said Hermione was gay and that she was having a lesbian relationship with all the female characters from the book. And Professor Snape was a repressed homosexual who likes secretly filming Dumbledore and the others. And Dobby is a gimp that Harry visits for nighttime sex partys in the magical woods".
Apparently the audience was left ashen faced and dumb-struck.
"It certainly put a whole new meaning onto the stories", said Katherine, "It will be difficult to see the characters quite in the same lite again".
