Harry Styles dances around in Pride flag at One Direction concert

Gabby Jeffries September 8, 2015

One Direction singer Harry Styles sparked cheers from fans, by running around on stage in a Pride flag.

At the band’s show in Buffalo, New York, the singer appeared to pull the flag from the audience during a performance of ‘Act My Age’ – wearing it as a cape before dancing around and waving the flag.

It’s unclear why Styles made the gesture by picking up the flag – but it’s been welcomed by from his legions of supporters.

However, perhaps they should be careful of reading too much into it – the star’s bandmate Louis Tomlinson targeted a reporter with a foul-mouthed Twitter tirade last year, after she questioned whether he was wearing a rainbow Apple shirt as a tribute to the company’s newly-out CEO Tim Cook.

He tweeted: “The fact that you work for such a ‘credible’ paper and you would talk such rubbish is laughable. I am in fact straight… F***ing ridiculous I even have to tweet that s**t!”

Styles has previously joked about rumours about his sexuality.

When the band were asked to name four traits they look for in a girl, Liam Payne was quick to say: “Female, it’s a good trait”.

Styles laughed, and added: “Not that important! Hey, don’t knock it ’til you try it.”

He also showed his support for gay NFL player Michael Sam by wearing a St Louis Rams jersey on stage last year – just days before Sam was cut by the team.

One Direction are rumoured to be breaking up after their current tour and commitments, going on a ‘break’ from next March.
