The musician Hozier waved the transgender flag at a show in London last week.
During an October 3 performance, a fan threw the pink, blue, and white flag on stage. Hozier grabbed the flag and hung it behind him.
Hozier finished his set with his 2013 mega-hit “Take Me to Church,” at which point he picked up the flag again and waved it.
Some fans posted pictures to social media.

Someone chucked a trans pride flag at @Hozier during Nina Cried Power. He thrust it in the air then hung it up behind him where it stayed for the rest of the gig. This is him, raising it up again for Take Me To Church to end the show. This is what an ally looks like. pic.twitter.com/q9lb6QKRDy

Video was also posted of Hozier raising the flag during “Take Me to Church.” Hozier did not actually mention TERFs (trans exclusionary radical feminists).
The person who brought the flag was identified by Pink News as student and artist Filip Mikulski.
Mikulski wrote on Twitter that he didn’t think that the flag would make it on stage.
“I didn’t think it would make its way on stage, and yet here we are,” he wrote. “I still can’t believe that happened. The flag still has some stage tape on it.”
Fun fact: when I stuffed my trans flag into my pocket on the way to see Hozier yesterday I didn't think it would make its way on stage, and yet here we are. I still can't believe that happened. The flag still has some stage tape on it 😂 Thanks to the guys who threw it at him! pic.twitter.com/yNxpBsql8n

“He sees our fight and our struggles, and stands among us, not against us,” Mikulski added. “It is hard for me to not see him as an LGBT+ ally when all his actions show that he cares about the community, and supports us and our actions.”
