Harry Styles helped a fan come out at his concert in Connecticut at the weekend.
The One Direction star – who has a strong LGBTQ+ following – was performing a solo gig at the Mohegan Sun Arena inside the casino in Uncasville on Saturday (23.10.21) night when he assisted a gig-goer in their request to publicly declare their sexuality.
After he spotted a girl holding a sign with “Help me come out” emblazoned across it in the packed-out crowd, the 27-year-old pop star threw up a rainbow pride flag and said: “Anyone particular you’d like to come out to?
“Is it for yourself? When I raise this flag you’re officially out, heard that’s how it works! She’s oooout!”
The ‘Watermelon Sugar’ singer has made a thing of taking requests from fans via signs at his shows.
Last month, Harry did a gender reveal for a pregnant fan midway through his show.
The ‘Golden’ hitmaker was performing at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville when he spotted the woman in the audience urging him to help her.
The fan held a sign which played on the lyrics to Harry’s song ‘Kiwi’ and read: “I’m having a baby. Please make it your business…”
Another poster urged him to “open the results”, which he agreed to do.
After being given the piece of paper containing the results, Harry – who was on the phone with the woman’s partner, Mike – laughed and said: “I revel in these moments because I know everything… and you don’t.”
And he then joked he planned to keep the couple in suspense as he said: “Okay we’re going to do another song!
“Oh you’re still there Mike!”
He then organised the audience into a countdown before dropping to his knees and declaring: “It’s a little baby girl.”
He quipped: “That’s what I wanted – is that what you wanted?”
The music star then pretended to cry with joy as the arena erupted in cheers at the news.
And the week before, Harry – who is dating Olivia Wilde – offered some dating advice to one woman in the audience after she used a placard to ask him a question.
At the show in Minnesota, the fan was holding up a sign which read, “Should I text him?”, and the ‘Adore You’ singer addressed the question on stage.
He said: “In my opinion, if you should, then this isn’t even a question.
“If we’re playing games … If you’re wondering, ‘Should I text him? Can’t text him too soon … And now I’m thinking about double texting and that’s whole other risky business …’
“My personal opinion is that if there’s any sort of games: Trash, trash, trash, not for you.”
