During the Chicago stop on her Reputation tour Saturday, Taylor Swift celebrated Pride Month by delivering an emotional speech at the sold-out show. 

Before performing her single "Delicate," the pop superstar first gave a speech directed towards her LGBTQ fans, lauding them for their courage, TThe Huffington Post reports.

"It's very brave to be vulnerable about your feelings in any situation," Swift said. "But it's even more brave to be honest about your feelings and who you love when you know that it might be met with adversity from society."

"This month, and every month, I want to send my love and respect to everybody who has been brave enough to be honest about how they feel, to live their lives as they are, as they feel they should be, as they identify," she added. 

Before singing "Delicate," Swift went on to say:

"I want to send my love and respect to everybody who hasn't felt comfortable enough to come out yet ... and may you do that on your own time and may we end up in a world where everyone can live and love equally, and no one has to be afraid to be vulnerable and say how they feel."
