Meet Rainbow Direction, One Direction's LGBT Superfans

Who knew we needed Pride at One Direction concerts? Apparently, Rainbow Direction did.

We already show Pride at baseball games and the New York Stock Exchange; why not at One Direction concerts?

Rainbow Direction is a collection of queer and allied fans of the British boy band that gather at concerts to be out and loud (we hear they scream the loudest). The group aims to "show fans of all sexualties and genders that the 1D community welcomes them," according to a spokesperson for RD.

The colorful contingent was in force at Friday's 1D concert at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium, cheering on Liam, Harry, Louis, and Niall in they way only LGBT (and gay-friendly) fans can. "I support Rainbow Direction mainly because I saw how LGBT fans of One Direction are treated so poorly and I'll always be one to get behind supporting the LGBT community," 20-year-old Venus said.

Check out some images of the show below, as well as an original RD video.
