“If you are black, if you are white, if you are gay, if you are straight, if you are transgender — whoever you are, whoever you want to be — I support you.”

–Singer Harry Styles, speaking to fans at a concert in Stockholm, Sweden. Styles gave the speech after telling the audience to all hold hands. “I love every single one of you,” he added.

It’s one of a number of pro-LGBTQ moments on Styles’ current concert tour, which has seen him display a rainbow flag on stage in San Francisco and wave a transgender pride flag alongside a Puerto Rican flag in D.C. in October.

Styles’ LGBTQ followers flooded Twitter after the news of his speech broke.
