It is a lie that Dumbledore is homosexual

Well, not really. But it could be a lie: it could in principle be the case that Rowling did not write Dumbledore as a homosexual character, but rather made that up after the fact to support some other agenda. For example, the agenda which drove her to go on to say:
‘”I know that it was a positive thing that I said it for at least one person because one man ‘came out’ at Carnegie Hall,” Rowling told reporters in Toronto Tuesday morning.’
Soon there will be a market for “I came out because Dumbledore cast a spell on me” T-shirts.
But the point is, if it is possible for it to be a lie that Dumbledore is homosexual, it is also possible for it to be true.
