The alleged assault and hate crime happened on November 24 at 5:45am in the venue’s toilets.
The thug, who is described as ‘North African’ is believed to have first launched a homophobic barrage of abuse against the man.
When the victim tried to leave the bathroom, the attacker then ‘gave him a strong punch in the nose leaving him totally stunned’, according to police.
He is then believed to have fled the scene, while his victim was treated at the Macarena Hospital.
A local LGBT organisation has condemned the vile incident and called for the alleged attacker to be identified.
The Association of Transsexuals of Andalusia-Sylvia Rivera said this is necessary ‘to guarantee rights, equal treatment and non-discrimination of LGBTI people and their families in Andalucia’.
A spokesperson said there is ‘a political responsibility to ensure the rule of law and for all people to feel protected’.
