Harry Styles is proving to be a trustworthy partner. On June 20, the As It Was singer helped a fan come out as gay during his Love On Tour at Wembley Stadium in London, after seeing a sign in the crowd that said, From Ono to Wembley: Help me come out. Luckily for that fan, he was happy to oblige.
The One Direction alum (whose bandmate Niall Horan was to appear in the audience) approached for a rainbow flag, which he was given by another proud audience member. I think that''s how it works: When this flag goes over my head, you''re officially gay, my boy. I think that''s how Styles made a remarkable moment out of the event, running across the stage with the flag before triumphantly lifting it above his head. Congratulations, you''re a liberated man!
Styles took to his Twitter account (which is a rare occasion outside announcements) to send a message to the attendees. Wembley, last night was one of the most beautiful shows we have ever played, he wrote. I am adamantly overwhelmed. I''m so grateful, thank you. I''ll get it done later. H.
Styles received a note from McKinley McConnell, a 23-year-old former homosexual, that said, "My mom is in Section 201." Do you want me to tell her, at his Milwaukee show? he asked her, and she cried, "Oh, she is gay!" After that, she told me, "You always had a flair for dramatics."
Although Styles has expressed his support for LGBTQ people very clear, often waving different Pride flags at his shows, he has refused to label his sexuality himself. In an April interview with Better Homes & Gardens, the singer said speculation about his sexuality is outdated. It''s also my personal experience, however, that it doesn''t matter, and it''s not about having to label everything, rather than knowing what boxes you''re checking.
