Drag Performer Attacked Outside San Diego Gay Bar While Patrons Watched

by Jeremy Kinser March 02, 2016


Kickxy Vixen-Styles, a popular drag performer, works the door as a greeter at  in San Diego, but she didn’t make any friends when she was allegedly attacked while transgender patrons watched without helping.

Vixen-Styles claims she was accosted in the bar’s parking lot by a man who had been escorted out of the club earlier in the night. The attacker had allegedly tried to sneak into the bar. When she left work at approximately 3:30 a.m., he was waiting.

“I’m done for the night and I’m walking to my car when all of a sudden he’s behind me and I try to get in my car but it was too late he grabs my door open, and at that point I’m stuck between my door and him slamming it against me and trying to break my window,” Vixen-Styles told the San Diego Gay & Lesbian News.

She didn’t suffer any serious injury thanks to bar security staff, but says she’s left with emotional scars after her screams for help went unanswered by patrons. “A group of four trans girl(s) just sat across the street watching instead of getting help,” she said. “”I just felt so helpless and in a way just let down by the people around.”

“You would think that in your community people would take care of each other,” she posted on Facebook. “I know that if I were to see something like that I would intervene and get help. Please be safe out there and take care of each other.”

Vixen-Styles described her attacker to SDGLN as, “mid to late 20’s, Middle Eastern I think, black hair, goatee, about 5’10 to 6’0. Regular build.”

A separate attack on a Rich’s patron in January left the victim, William Frank Kidney, in the hospital.
