Don’t bother tweeting at or tagging Harry Styles on TikTok or Instagram.
If you truly want a response from the musician, throw down some money for a poster board, a marker and a ticket to one of his upcoming shows and ask him for a little help.
A fan at a concert in Milwaukee did just that on Wednesday night, giving the “Watermelon Sugar” singer a chance to show off his life coaching skills once again by helping the concertgoer come out to her mother.
The fan, whom Milwaukee news station CBS 58 identified as McKinley McConnell, held up a sign during the concert that read: “My mom is in section 201. Help me come out.”
Styles saw the sign, suddenly stopped the show, asked for the house lights to come on and went over to McConnell to offer his assistance.
He then asked the star-stuck fan what her mother’s name was and located the woman, Lisa Bibik, in the audience as she appeared on the venue’s giant screen.
According to footage that McConnell shot of the interaction, Styles approached her by the side of the stage and asked, “What would you like to tell your mother?”
After some cute back and forth between the two, the singer offered to relay the information on McConnell’s sign to her mother.
“Lisa! She’s gay!” he yelled with a smile. The crowd erupted in cheers as McConnell and Bibik were shown on the venues’ screens, emotionally reacting to the moment.
McConnell told CBS 58 after the show that her mom took the news well and congratulated her. Bibik, meanwhile, told the outlet that she was touched that Styles had taken the time to make that moment even more special for the mother and daughter.
“I think I feel really blessed, and very honored to be in that moment,” Bibik said. “It’s very rare that you get to have these once-in-a-lifetime experiences. So, I’m very honored and very blessed that I was able to be a part of it.”
Styles also helped another fan come out the night before during a show in Connecticut, Teen Vogue reports. This fan had a sign that read: “Help me come out, wave my flag.” Styles spotted the sign, the fan threw their bisexual pride flag to the stage and Styles grabbed it.
“When I raise this flag, you’re officially out. I’ve heard that’s how it works,” Styles said at the time.
