NORTH Wales drag superstar The Vivienne has shared that they were the victim of an attack during Pride month.

The performer, real name James Lee Williams, who attended Rydal Penrhos School, in Colwyn Bay, spoke out on social media after the incident in Liverpool today.

They tweeted that they were "attacked" and "homophobia alive and well folks!"


They thanked staff at McDonalds in Edge Lane Liverpool and members of the public who supported them after the incident.

They tweeted: “Huge thank you to the fantastic staff at @McDonaldsUK Edge Lane who acted fast and removed the idiot from the premises and did everything in their power to make sure I was ok and waited for police with me.”

They added: “Two lovely ladies just came and complimented my hair and said I look lovely, what a stark contrast of people we have on this planet! All in a day huh?

“A punch and a compliment.”

They added the police response has also been "great".

Later, The Vivienne, who was recently part of the Eurovision celebrations in Liverpool, tweeted: “HAPPY PRIDE MONTH!”

Fans were quick to offer their support on social media.

Sarah Lloyd tweeted: “We live in a very conflicted world. So glad you are OK but it's so not ok what's happened. Keep doing you, chin up and continue being the person we all love.”

The Vivienne is one of the UK’s most high profile drag performers after winning season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and appearing on Dancing on Ice and Emmerdale.

They have been fearlessly outspoken on LGBTQ+ issues.

After being educated in North Wales, they found fame on the Liverpool drag scene before their TV breakthrough and now live in Chester.
