Does it matter that Dumbledore is gay? by

J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved Harry Potter franchise, recently announced that her character, and the head of Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore is gay.

I was surprised to hear this. I had never heard any speculation prior to Rowling's announcement and it had never even crossed my mind. If anything, I saw the character as almost asexual and if he had a significant other, it would most definitely be Hogwarts itself. 

So my question is - does it matter? Does Dumbledore's sexual preference change anything in the story? Have you read the books since the announcement? If so, do you read the stories differently?

Harry Potter, Hermione and Luna Lovegood (or at least the actors that portray them) have offered their thoughts on their beloved headmaster being outed.
