The British LGBT Awards praised Harry’s “unapologetic” nature and "inclusivity" in music for his place as a nominee, with mention to his upcoming movie, My Policeman, where he will play a gay police officer.

They said: “While Harry Styles may have begun his career through One Direction, he has since skyrocketed to another level of celebrity through his work in the fashion industry and his solo music career.

“His unapologetic approach to gender-fluid fashion and his frequent references to inclusivity in the music industry has marked him out as an icon for young queer generations.

“Styles also branched out into the film industry. His most recent role will see him play a gay police officer in period drama, My Policeman."
