Veronica’s response? “Peter is gay,” she said. “You don’t see it much in the books because they’re from Tris’s point of view, but it’s there. I think Peter has always masked his feelings with hate. When he and Edward broke up, he plucked his eye out.”

A seventeen minute round of applause followed the announcement.

Update: Following the announcement, Vladamir Putin has announced that the books are now banned from being read in Russia.
