Harry Styles admits that this is how he feels about gay rights


Harry Styles


Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Harry Styles has been absolutely killing it lately. Not only has he proved he is the nicest guy ever buy doing the sweetest thing for his fans, he finally revealed the surprising benefit that comes with dating him AND his debut solo music has already been a phenomenal success.

So far, 2017 has been good to the One Directioner.

And it seems the 23 year-old is ready to use his new solo platform to start discussing wider problems in the world. He has already shared the emotional reason behind his new album, and now he is keen to talk freely about issues that affect us all now that he's left his boybander image behind.

During an interview with French talk show Quotidien, Harry was asked what he thought Brexit.

'I don't really comment on politics,' he started. 'To me anything that brings people together is better than things that pull people apart.'

The host pressed: 'You are in favour of quality of rights, men, women, gay people, straight people. That's politics.'

Harry has always openly supported the LGBTQ+ community and famously went on stage draped in a pride flag while performing with One Direction.

So he was quick to respond: '[Equal rights] doesn't feel like politics to me. Stuff like equality feels much more fundamental.

'I feel like everyone is equal. That doesn't feel like politics to me.'

Well said, Harry.
