    And before performing her song, Delicate, she gave a speech to mark LGBT Pride Month.

    June is Pride Month & @taylorswift13 gave a really great speech!! We've come so far, but we've still got a long way to go... #repTourChicago #PrideMonth https://t.co/qNfXj9HcKV

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

    "So this month and every month I want to send out my love and respect to everybody who has been brave enough to be honest about the way they feel, to live their lives as they are, as they feel they should be, as they identify.

    "And this is a month where I think we need to celebrate how far we’ve come but we also need to acknowledge how far we still have left to go.

    "And I want to send my love and respect out to everybody who in their journey hasn’t yet felt comfortable enough to come out and may you do that in your own time.

    "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.

    "When it comes to feelings and when it comes to love and searching for someone to spend your whole life with... it’s all just really really delicate. You know?"

    She apparently gave the speech whilst wearing a rainbow dress and people really loved it.

    I loved everything about #RepTourChiacgo but the best part was @taylorswift13 giving a pride speech while wearing a rainbow dress ❤️❤️❤️ #reputation #ReturnOfTheQueen

    Taylor just gave a 5 minute speech about Pride Month while wearing her rainbow dress and how the world has so much farther to go to understand love and basically dedicated Delicate to the LGBTQ community so that just happened at #reptourchicago
