Harry Styles kicked off the first solo tour of his career last night with a show in San Francisco. Onstage, he draped a rainbow flag over his microphone stand and waved it around during the show. Fans naturally responded with enthusiasm:
Styles has showed his solidarity with the LGBTQ community onstage before. At a NYC One Direction show in 2015, he wore the pride flag as a cape:

And in 2014 he wore out football star Michael Sam's jersey as an act of brotherhood:

Styles' world tour, which has queer band MUNA opening many of its shows, heads to Los Angeles tonight and then across the globe. Tickets are available here, though every North American date this fall, as well as many international gigs, are sold out.
