POPULAR drag queen Satin Greco was attacked by a group of men in the heart of gay-friendly Torremolinos last Saturday, as he walked home from work at around 7am.
Greco, well-known on the Costa del Sol, was set upon by the men, who were said to have shouted “fag”.
They then pounced on him in an attempt to rob the drag artiste in La Nogalera, a neighbourhood deemed a safe haven for the LGBTQ+ community.
Fortunately, the commotion was heard by staff from the nearby Eden Copas bar, who dashed over to intervene. Others joined in immediately, and the assailants soon vanished.
The suspects were identified as “foreign”, but their nationality was not known.
Greco was taken to the local health centre, where he was treated for wounds, including scratches and bruised fingers.
He did not work at the weekend, as scheduled, and has reported the homophobic incident to Torremolinos police.
