Apart from acting and music, Harry Styles is famous for his controversial fashion choices.
This has made many wonder whether he is gay.
He Is Not Gay
The artist is not gay since he dated Caroline Flick when he was 17 years old.
Their relationship resulted in controversies since she was more than ten years his senior.
He proceeded to date Taylor Swift in 2012, leading to many speculating that they were writing songs about each other when they separated.
He dated Camille Rowe, a French-American model, from 2017 to 2018.
She inspired him to create the album, Fine Line, which was released in 2019.
Since the beginning of 2021, the star has been in a relationship with director and actress Olivia Wade.
Why Many Feel He May Be Gay
In 2020, he was the first male to feature alone on the cover of Vogue.
After being criticized by many for posing in a Gucci gown, he defended his choice stating, “To not wear [something] because it’s females’ clothing, you shut out a whole world of great clothes” and that “what’s exciting about right now is you can wear what you like” as lines “are becoming more and more blurred.”
When asked in 2013 if he was bisexual, he answered, “I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
He said that the idea that he ought to state his sexual preference publicly is old-fashioned.
He revealed, “that’s my personal experience,” and “it doesn’t matter, and it’s about not having to label everything, not clarifying what boxes you’re checking.”
When in 2019, he was asked about his controversial dressing style and sexual mysteriousness, he said, “Am I sprinkling in nuggets of sexual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No… In terms of how I wanna dress, and what the album sleeve’s gonna be, I tend to make decisions in terms of collaborators I want to work with. I want things to look a certain way. Not because it makes me look gay, or it makes me look straight, or it makes me look bisexual, but because I think it looks cool.
And more than that, I dunno, I just think sexuality’s something that’s fun. Honestly? I can’t say I’ve given it any more thought than that.”
He Supports The LGBTQ+ Community
The star has openly stated he supports the LGBTQ+ community and even waved a rainbow flag while performing.
He also wore LGBTQ+-themed clothes and supported the fans.
In 2018, he sold T-shirts with the message, “Treat People With Kindness.”
In 2019, while responding to questions that he was not using his influence to fight for specific causes, he said, “Because of dilution.
Because I’d prefer, when I say something, for people to think I mean it.
To be honest, I’m still searching for that one thing, y’know. Something I can really stand up for, and get behind, and be like: This Is My Life Fight. There’s a power to doing the one thing. You want your whole weight behind it.”
