A Harry Styles Concert Is Always A Pride Celebration

Harry Styles has never shied away from making his concerts inclusive places for all! Since the beginning of Harry’s tour, every single concert has included waves of rainbow, LGBTQ+ pride flags where members of the LGBTQ+ community, who are also proud Harry fans, have attended Styles’s concerts and have felt empowered and included in the space.

Harry’s Fans Did A LGBTQ+ Project at his London concert

At his concerts, Harry always takes a moment to grab an LGBTQ+ pride flag, and sometimes trans and bisexual pride flags, and performs one of his tracks, holding the flag or draping it over his microphone stand. Moreover, he has often made statements to do with issues involving the LGBTQ+ community, such as celebrating same sex marriage legalisation.

It should be noted that Harry’s concerts have become places where fans can express themselves and the social issues that they are passionate about fighting for. Harry himself has praised and supported initiatives such as March For Our Lives.

In addition to the safe, brave spaces created at his concerts, Harry has also been performing his track “Medicine” which does not have a studio version as of yet. The song, which indicates a sexually fluid encounter that Harry had, is considered to be a bisexual/pansexual anthem for some, and has been praised by many in the LGBTQ+ community.

During this month of Pride, Harry Styles’s merchandise store has also released a shirt collection that has his slogan “Treat People With Kindness” in rainbow font. Harry is planning to donate the profits to GLSEN, a LGBTQ+ organisation that works to make school and learning spaces more safe and accepting of queer teenagers and students.

Harry Styles continues to be an outstanding individual who has successfully created spaces at his concerts where the LGBTQ+ community feels loved and accepted. Undoubtedly, he has become a role model for many as he is admired and praised for removing barriers of heteronormativity that prevent many people from being who they are.
