A Trio with Brio

Earlier this month in Sydney, Australia, a group of homophobes attacked 34-year-old Ivan Flinn, dislocating his jaw. He thought he was about to die.

But lo and behold, three guardian angels intervened. Their names were Coco Jumbo, Ivy Leaguee and Vybe–drag queens who'd performed earlier in the evening.

Flinn said "the next thing I knew Ivy went in and was scrapping with the guy who punched me. They’re in the middle of the road, cars swerving around them, tooting, and I saw the guy rip her wig off.

"They were bashing each other and she’s still wearing her high heels."

Coco said she threw a fellow into the gutter. "I don’t think they knew what they were getting themselves into. I used to play rugby league."

Ivy noted, "These big burly guys couldn’t even throw a punch, all they could do was pull hair and run."

The saviors' wigs and outfits were damaged in the fracas, but Coco said, "It’s all just materials at the end of the day, there’s no use crying over split lace."

Flinn, though, is showing his gratitude by raising funds to replace the battered attire. He's making sure his guardian angels look like queens.
