Albus Dumbledore

While a lot of people don't want to be outed by someone else (see T. R. Knight and Isaiah Washington), if there's one outing of a gay man in 2007 that was cool for young and old alike that didn't cause any bad blood - for the most part - it would have to be JK Rowling coming clean that her character, top wizard Albus Dumbledore, was in fact part of the GLBT crowd - and while we probably won't see Dumbledore kicking it in any parades in '08 - there are now hundreds of millions of copies with a great gay character in circulation - and that's pretty cool.
