Ever the ally, Harry stepped in to get the message across to the other side of the audience.

The Sign of the Times singer, 27, made the announcement on behalf of his young fan, telling the thousands in the arena: “Lisa, she’s gay!”

The crowd erupted into cheers and applause as Harry shouted into his microphone.

The stadium cameras then quickly turned to McKinley’s mother Lisa, who was overcome with emotional after hearing her daughter’s announcement via an international pop star.

“Now, I don’t want to ruin a moment, but wouldn’t it be nice if you were a little bit closer together?” Harry joked, referencing the distance between the mother and daughter.

The singer made sure he celebrated Halloween in style over the weekend

This isn’t the first time Harry has helped a fan come out during a performance.

In 2018, the singer paused a gig mid-way through to assist a fan coming out to her mother.

While attending a gig in California, fan Grace displayed a double-sided sign that read: “I’m going to come out to my parents because of you.”

Speaking to Buzzfeed, Grace said she mad the sign as Harry is a proud supporter of the LGBTQ+ community and makes fans “feel comfortable” with who they are.

Harry didn’t just see the sign, he stopped the gig to chat with Grace and ask her mother’s name.

With his fan’s permission, he announced on stage: “Tina, she’s gay!”

“To have Harry not only read my sign but ask my name and my mother’s and help me come out to her meant the absolute world to me,” Grace later said of the event.
