Washington D.C. [U.S.A], Sept. 21 (ANI): Harry Styles' new tour is all about love & equality.

The singer, who rose to fame with One Direction, waved a rainbow Pride flag, thrown by a fan, while performing his song 'Woman,' reports E! Online.

The social was lit by the videos of the 'Sign of the Times' hit-maker, with fans applauding his support for LGBTQ community.

"Cried in the arms of a gay man standing by me when this happened. It was a beautiful moment and a wonderful show. Thank you @Harry_Styles," wrote one user.

Another user tweeted, "Harry dancing on stage with an LGBTQ pride flag makes me feel safe. What a human being. Thank you. I love you so much @Harry_Styles."

Styles has long been a supporter of equal rights for women and the LGBTQ community.

In an interview in April, the pop sensation noted, "Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental. I feel like everyone is equal. That doesn't feel like politics to me."(ANI)
