Harry Styles Just Helped A Fan Come Out To Her Mom During His Concert—And Now We're Sobbing

Coming out is one of the most incredibly difficult stages for a closeted individual to disclose their sexual orientation or gender identity to a friend or family member.

So what better time to make a grand entrance into the LGBTQ community than at a Harry Styles concert?

The "Watermelon Sugar" singer, who is a huge LGTBQ+ ally, helped a fan attending his Love On Tour concert in Milwaukee come out to her mother, who was seated in a different section.

The moment was captured on video and the internet fell even more in love with Styles for showing up for McKinley McConnell, the closeted 23-year-old, who needed assistance.

She shared the clip on Twitter, where she expressed immense gratitude for the adored singer:

"A moment that will actually be with me forever. thank you for creating a safe place for me."
"Thank you for letting me grow along side you as a fan. Thank you for helping me know who i am. thank you."


Styles, who loves stopping his performances to interact with the crowd, noticed McConnell near the stage holding up a sign that read:

"My mom is in Section 201. Help me come out."

The British singer ran over towards her asked, "What would you like to tell your mother?" before extending the mic out to her.

Responding to her apparent apprehension, he said:

"Do you want me to tell her? I can tell her. Yeah, no problem, one second."

Styles then ran across to center stage and yelled out into the 17,000-seat arena, "Lisa, she's gay!"



The mother was seen on the jumbotron shocked at the interaction and then raising both arms up after composing herself in an apparent sign of acceptance.

"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 as the crowd continued to cheer.

The celebration (and tears) continued over on Twitter.










According to NBC News, McConnell had flown in from Los Angeles with her family, who were seated in another section, to catch the former One Direction singer's show.

This was not the first time Styles scored major points with the LGBTQ+ community.

Last month, he helped another fan come out as bisexual during his concert at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena.

The unnamed concertgoer held a sign that read, "help me come out," and handed Styles her bisexual flag, which he grabbed and told the audience:

"When I raise this flag, you're officially out. I've heard that's how it works."




In a 2019 cover story interview with Rolling Stone, Styles said of his multiple LGBTQ+ banner-waving traditions:

"I want to make people feel comfortable being whatever they want to be. Maybe at a show you can have a moment of knowing that you're not alone."
