2007: Albus Dumbledore Comes Out

Albus Dumbledore

Pearls of wisdom from YA’s greatest gay sage. 

For 25 years, OUT has celebrated queer culture. To mark our silver jubilee, we look back at some of the biggest, brightest moments of the past 9,131 days.

1. "Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

2. "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

3. "Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it."

4. "Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love."

5. "We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided."

6. "Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth."

7. "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

8. "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live. Remember that."

9. "You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!"

10. "Dark times are ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right."
