Singer Harry Styles has debuted a new song at a concert on his current world tour and his queer fans have proudly labelled the track an ode to bisexuality.
The former One Direction member debuted the previously unreleased track “Medicine” at a concert in Switzerland, according to reports, and fan-filmed video clips of Styles’ performance posted to social media platforms have sent his fans into a frenzy.
According to the video, Styles appears to sing, “Tingle running through my bones, the boys and the girls are here, I mess around a bit, and I’m okay with it.”
Many of Harry’s fans – including Aussie singer Troye Sivan and figure skater Adam Rippon – interpreted “Medicine” as a nod to bisexuality and voiced their approval on Twitter.
The singer has long been an outspoken advocate for LGBTIQ rights, and last year told The Sun newspaper that he has “never felt the need” to use a label for his sexuality.
“I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself,” he said.
“It’s weird for me — everyone should just be who they want to be. It’s tough to justify somebody having to answer to someone else about stuff like that.”
