A HUGELY popular drag queen has been attacked in the heart of gay-friendly Torremolinos.
Satin Greco, one of the most well-known drag performers on the Costa del Sol, was attacked by a group of ‘foreign men’ as he walked home from work at around 7am on Saturday.
The men reportedly shouted ‘fag’ at Greco before jumping him and trying to rob him in La Nogalera, a neighbourhood deemed a safe haven for the LGBTQ+ community.
Luckily the commotion was heard by nearby staff from the Eden Copas bar, who all rushed over to intervene.
Others immediately joined to back Greco up and managed to scare the assailants away.
The suspects have been identified as ‘foreign’ but Greco has not detailed their nationality.
Greco was taken to the local health centre where he was treated for defensive wounds, including scratches and bruised fingers.
He did not work Saturday and Sunday as scheduled and has reported the homophobic incident to Torremolinos police.
