Harry Edward Styles was born on 1st February 1994 in Redditch, Worcestershire, England. He is an English singer as well as a songwriter. In addition to it, he is an actor too. He came under the limelight when he competed in the show X-Factor, although later he was eliminated from the show.


Simon Cowell brought him back to join a boy band popularly known as “One Direction”. The band dominated music charts around the world from 2010 to 2016. Unluckily, the boy band went on an indefinite separation in early 2016.

Harry Style is one of the biggest music stars of the past decade.

After the group got disbanded, Harry signed a contract with Columbia artists and released his first album in 2017. Styles debut album topped all charts in 14 countries, and its lead song, Sign of the Times, earned Styles a Brit Award.

Fine line

Harry’s second album, Fine Line, debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.

The album that brought limelight to his career also resulted in a lookover at Harry Styles’ sexuality.


For a long time, Harry Styles has been an advocate of LGBTQ rights. Rainbow pride flags swung freely on the stage during his concerts. However, there hasn’t really been a question about Harry’s sexuality until recently.

Light Up

Styles released the lead song for his new album, Light Up, on National Coming Out Day in 2019. The song signified that people should celebrate self-discovery and comfort in their own skin. The song’s video showcased Harry enjoying caresses from and to the people irrespective of gender.

Questions on s*xuality: who cares?

After all these incidents, Harry received questions about his s*xuality, but he doesn’t answer because, as he told the Guardian, “Who cares?”

Styles’ refusal to open up about his s*xuality has led some to accuse him of using his ambiguous sexuality to appeal to the LGBTQ community. He denied this accusation during an interview with The Guardian:

“Am I sprinkling in nuggets of s*xual ambiguity to try and be more interesting? No… 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 bis*xual, but because I think it looks cool. And more to that, I dunno, I just think s*xuality’s something that’s fun.”

Certainly, Styles is seen having fun with his outfits. He doesn’t feel confined by gender with the outfits that he chooses. For him, it’s all about being comfortable with what you wear irrespective of gender preference. Further, He added:

“What women wear. What men wear. For me, it’s not a question of that… I think the moment you feel more comfortable with yourself, it all becomes a lot easier. I think it’s a very free, and free, time. I think people are asking, ‘Why not?’ a lot more. Which excites me. It’s not just clothing where lines have been blurred, it’s going across so many things.”
