“Does anybody like dolphins?”
“Don’t go to SeaWorld”
– Harry Styles, July 9th.

It’s no secret that Harry Styles is a young man with a heart larger than the actual size of the stadium’s that the boys perform in. It’s also not a surprise to many in the fandom that Harry continuously, year after year, stands up for many causes such as all aspects of equality, proper education, and even environmental changes.
If you’re not familiar with the One Direction fandom, almost everyone is involved with active and political causes in the real world. Yes, we do fangirl over everything our boys do, but we also believe in making the world a better place one day at a time alongside our favorite boys.
Over the past few years, the issue of SeaWorld along with their dolphin and whale captivity has struck worldwide and has began to open many people’s eyes from the documentaries “The Cove” and “Blackfish”.
One thing that I absolutely love about Harry and can speak on behalf of the fandom when I say this is his perception to never see the world as a bad place. Yes, there are bad circumstances, but if we all come together, we can make changes towards anything and everything one day at a time. That is what Harry wants his fans to see, that we too can have an impact and make a change.
Recently, the Dolphin Project has created shirts with Harry’s very own quote printed on the front and back, as shown below.
Harry is a beautiful individual inside and out. If you know a lot about Harry, or don’t know much at all, he is a young man with a heart of gold. Our relationship with him as fans is essentially teamwork. Some may deem our fandom as one that simply admires the looks, but truly, we admire the genuine personalities and caring heart of each of our boys. Harry goes beyond the ordinary to make changes in the world.
Whether you agree with Harry’s comment on SeaWorld and about the SeaWorld debate in general, you cannot argue the fact that Harry is an inspiration. He wants his fans to see the good and to be the change. That is something worth talking about.
Harry, we love you. Continue to fight for everything you believe in, and we’ll fight right alongside with you.
Teamwork for change.
