“You’re officially gay, my boy!”
Harry Styles just helped a fan come out — and he did it in a really big way!
Over the weekend, Harry was performing at Wembley Stadium when he noticed a fan with a sign asking for help coming out.
The sign, that read “From Ono to Wembley: Help me come out,” made it all the way to the stage where Harry enthusiastically agreed to assist.
“So, you would like the people of Wembley to bring you out?” Harry asked, before the crowd erupted into loud cheers.
Once he was sure that the fan, named Mattia, was on board, Harry grabbed a Pride flag to mark the moment.
“When this flag goes above my head, you are officially out, okay?” Harry said, jokingly adding, “I think that’s how it works.”
Harry proceeded to run across the stage with the flag waving, queuing a drumroll from his band.
“When this [flag] goes over my head, you’re officially gay, my boy,” Harry added.
After teasing the crowd a bit, Harry finally lifted the flag in the air, declaring, “Congratulations…you are a free man!”
This isn’t the first time Harry has helped a fan come out either! He’s actually done so on quite a few occasions, including a time in 2018 when he stopped a concert to proclaim “Tina, she’s gay!” after seeing a fan named Grace’s sign about coming out to her mom.
“He’s a proud supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and he’s made a lot of fans feel comfortable and proud to be who they are and I’m just one example of that,” Grace told Buzzfeed News.
