when it could have been mentioned that Dumbledore was queer

I don’t have the books in front of me right now so I am sure I am forgetting tons of potential moments! Feel free to add more.

- when Harry and Dumbledore were alone with the Mirror of Erised. His answer didn’t have to be “woolen socks”.

- someone could have written bathroom graffiti of “Dumbldore is teh gay” and Harry could have asked him about that.

- Hagrid could have accidentally outed him.

- Madame Rosemerta could’ve made an appreciative comment of having at least one guy not flirting with her.

- Rita Skeeter could have brought it up in her biography on Dumbledore’s life. or at any time, when making Dumbledore sound senile.

- someone could definitely have made a crack about Dumbledore’s trust for Snape and snakes.

- Dumbledore could have danced with a man at the Yule Ball.

- he could have had a picture of his lover on his desk.

- Phineas Nigellus could’ve made a snarky comment about homosexuality.

- if it was well-known in the wizarding world, Ron could have said something and then Harry and Hermione could say, “what the fuck?” Ron could lord his knowledge over their heads.

- on his Chocolate Frog card he could have been listed as the first (or second or third) openly gay Headmaster at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

- or if that didn’t fit on his Chocolate Frog card, surely it could have been mentioned in Hogwarts: A History.

- Dumbledore’s sexuality could have been gossiped about after an Order of the Phoenix meeting. Fred and George could have overheard.

- Remus or Sirius might’ve outed Dumbledore in one of their talks with Harry.

- Dumbledore could’ve mentioned that he was gay.
