Harry Styles: We’re all a little bit gay, aren’t we?
Harry Styles has suggested that everyone is “a little bit gay”.
The former One Direction singer has made no secret of his active support of LGBT rights on his world tour, flying a rainbow flag prominently on stage at many of the stops over the past year.
He has also heavily hinted at his own fluid sexuality in his lyrics, and recently made a high-profile donation to the UK’s oldest LGBT+ charity London Friend, which provides counselling and support to those in the queer community.
At the final concert of his solo tour in Inglewood, California on July 14, Styles spotted a sign in a crowd that read “I’m gay and I love you”.
He replied: “I love you as well, thank you for coming… and I mean, we’re all a little bit gay, aren’t we? We’re all a little bit gay.”

The lyrics for Styles’ track “Medicine”, released in March, were interpreted by many fans as the singer hinting about his sexuality.
The song’s lyrics include: “The boys and the girls are here, I mess around with them, and I’m okay with it.
“I’m coming down, I figured out I kinda like it, and when I sleep I’m gonna dream of how you tasted.”
Fans freaked out over the track.
America’s sweetheart Adam Rippon chimed in, saying: “And just like that, my skin is clear, my my vision is corrected, and I’m suddenly bisexual”.
A different fan wrote on Twitter: “i was absent for a while but i’m back just to say that medicine is a bi anthem and i love one (1) man, harry styles”.
Another said: “harry styles is bi, my 14 year old self can be laid to rest”.
“Harry Styles is the bi icon We want and We deserve,” another commented, which seems fair.
Some could not contain their joy to mere lowercase letters.
One wrote: “HARRY STYLES JUST CAME OUT AS BI IM LITERALLY IN TEARS I AM ON THE GROUND IM SO HAPPY THAT HE FEELS OKAY WITH SHARING WHO HE IS AND BEING WHO HE IS IM SKBBING”.
Another said: “UPDATE: MEDICINE BY HARRY STYLES IS A BI ANTHEM. I REPEAT. IT IS A BI ANTHEM. CONFIRMED. I STAN FOREVER.”
And one more said: “HARRY STYLES IS GIVING THE BI’S THE REPRESENTATION THEY DESERVE”.
The support for their new bi icon was heartwarming.
One told everyone: “harry styles is a bi icon and i’ll fight anyone who doesn’t agree”.
And above the fact that “Sir Isaac Newton was only 23 when he discovered the law of gravity,” one fan wrote: “Harry Styles was only 23 when he wrote the bi anthem Medicine”.
The former One Direction singer had spoken about his sexuality before, saying last year that he had “never felt the need” to label himself.
“It’s weird for me – everyone should just be who they want to be,” he said at the time.
“It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”
