Harry Styles’ new video said bisexual rights, the internet has decreed.

After months of hints and teases about new, sexually charged music, Styles unleashed the thirst-quenching video for his new single, ‘Lights Up’.

Filmed in Mexico, the clip finds the ex-One Direction singer topless and glistening with sweat, as he writhes with a scantily-clad crowd of men and women.

Released on National Coming Out Day, the track features Styles singing about “step[ping]into the light” of a new identity and “never going back”.

Fans put two and two together and got 100 percent queer, with many hailing the track a “bisexual anthem”.

‘Lights Up’ serves as a follow-up of sorts to Styles’ previously singular bi anthem ‘Medicine’.

The unreleased track was debuted during Styles’ 2018 tour, and includes the line: “The boys and the girls are here/ I mess around with him/ And I’m OK with it.”

Naturally, fans took the lyrics as sacrosanct and a new queer icon was born.

For his part, Styles has refused to label his sexuality as straight, bi or otherwise – but has flown Pride, bi and trans flags while on tour.

Speaking to Rolling Stone in August, he said that he does this for his LGBT+ fans.

“I want to make people feel comfortable being whatever they want to be,” he said.

“I can’t claim that I know what it’s like, because I don’t. So I’m not trying to say, ‘I understand what it’s like.’ I’m just trying to make people feel included and seen.”
