Harry Styles continued to prove his ally credentials as he helped a fan come out to her mum mid-concert.
The heartwarming moment happened during the Milwaukee leg of Style’s Love On Tour concert series.
A fan who was standing near the stage held up a sign reading: “My mom is in Section 201. Help me come out.”
Of course, Styles – being the LGBT+ ally he is – saw the sign and ran over to help her out.
At first, he held out a microphone so that she could make the announcement herself, but the bashful fan requested the singer tell her mum for her, because there were “a lot of people” at the concert.
Styles then scurried across the stage, singing to himself, before screaming: “Lisa, she’s gay!”
The concert’s cameras then panned to the fan’s mum, who appeared overwhelmed. As she composed herself, the crowd cheered on in support.
“Now, I don’t want to ruin a moment, but wouldn’t it be nice if you were a little bit closer together?” Styles joked, highlighting the physical distance between the fan and her mum at the concert.
The fan shared a clip of her joyful coming out moment on Twitter and thanked Harry Styles for creating a “moment that will actually be with me forever”.
“Thank you for creating a safe place for me,” she wrote. “Thank you for letting me grow alongside you as a fan. Thank you for helping me know who I am. Thank you.”

The former One Direction star also helped a fan come out on stage at his Connecticut show just a few weeks ago.
“When I raise this flag, you’re officially out,” he declared. “I’ve heard that‘s how it works.”
