Harry Styles Helps Young Fan Come Out to Parents at Melbourne Gig
Harry Styles helped a fan to come out to her parents after seeing her sign mid-show during his Melbourne concert on February 24, viral video shows.
Footage by Samantha Egan-Brown shows the pop singer pause his Love on Tour set to speak to a fan named Fauve, whom he’d spotted holding up a sign that read: “Help me come out!!! Mum is next 2 me, dad is level 2, section 41.”
Styles read the sign out before asking, “Would you like us to go through our Love on Tour coming-out process?”
The former One Direction star then asked his band for some “coming out music” and chanted “Let’s go,” hyping up the crowd as he danced around on stage.
Speaking to Storyful, Samantha said her friend was the one holding the sign and had bought her parents tickets to the gig and “planned to come out to them using the sign.”
This isn’t the first time Styles has helped a fan come out, as the star has done the same thing at previous shows in London and the United States. Credit: Samantha Egan-Brown via Storyful
FAUVE: Fauve. Fauve!
HARRY STYLES: Fauve? How do you spell that?
HARRY STYLES: Lovely.
FAUVE: Like mauve!
HARRY STYLES: I never heard that before. Fauve, F-A-U-V-E. And this is your mum? Where did you come up with Fauve?
LISA: It's a French name!
HARRY STYLES: It's a French name. Ooh. Very sophisticated. Very, very sophisticated. OK. What's your name, Mum?
HARRY STYLES: Lisa.
[LAUGHTER AND CHEERS]
Wait. Also French. I don't think it is. All right, Fauve and Lisa. Are you having a good time tonight? Would you like me to read this out, Fauve? You ready? You seem nervous. Are you ready? You don't have to.
OK. Fauve's sign says, "Help me come out. My mum's next to me, and dad is level 2 section 41." Now. I feel like I could help. I feel like she might know. No, I mean, I've just said it and it's on the screen.
But would you like us to go through our "Love on Tour" coming out process? This is the first time we're taking this down under. Prepare yourself. Everything's going to be upside down! All right. Can I get some coming out music, please?
[FUNKY DISCO MUSIC PLAYING]
Oh, we're coming out like that tonight! OK. Here we come! Can I get some sparkles, please? OK. Fauve, are you happy with the speed? You happy with the music? This suits the occasion? OK.
Come on everybody, we're coming out tonight! Let's go. Let's go. Let's go, let's go, let's go! Let's go.
- Let's go, let's go, let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go!
HARRY STYLES: She's out! It's done!
[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
And you rise to the heavens of freedom, Fauve! Enjoy yourself.
