Adele drapes herself in Pride flag for emotional performance at BST Hyde Park

Adele made sure to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pride in style, as she draped herself in a rainbow flag for her second epic performance at BST Hyde Park.

The singer shared her love for the LGBT community during the spectacular gig, donning the Progress Pride Flag as she belted out her song When We Were Young.

Adele, 34, could also be seen waving the flag, with plenty of supporters in the crowd waving their rainbow flags right back at her, just hours after London’s Pride Parade.

She told the audience: ‘Happy Pride. I wore my hair out today to try and be a bit draggy.’

The star has long been a supporter of the LGBT community, previously performing for free at Pride in 2011, and describing the community as her ‘soulmates’ during an emotional speech following the shooting in Pulse nightclub, Florida, in 2016.

Of course, she also got ordained to marry her close friend Alan Carr to his husband Paul Drayton in 2018.
