When this 16-year-old went to a gay club with a fake ID, the last thing he expected to happen was for it to end with him fighting off a sexual assault.

However, sadly that's what happened to an anonymous Tumblr user, who has come forward to tell their story many years after it occurred.

In a now viral post, Tumblr user 'the gay one says so. therefore it is so' took to the social media site to share the story:

When I was 16, I had a fake i.d. and decided to go to a gay bar by myself because some friends bailed on me.

While there, an older gentleman bought me a drink. he wasn’t a creeper, and he definitely wasn’t unattractive.

I accepted the drink and began talking to him. No big deal. As the hour progressed, I felt myself feeling strange.

I mentioned that  felt like I had a headache, and this guy helped guide me out of the bar. as we were walking down the street, the thought of, ‘oh god, he’s drugged me, i’m going to die’ came to my head.

I tried to get away, but i was so drugged up that I could barely walk, let alone speak. It also didn’t help that i had really large ‘goth’ platform shoes because i was going through a phase.

Anyway, this guy brought me to his SUV and began undressing me. As a final act of defiance, I hit him over the head with my platform shoe.

He then punched me, and I remember thinking, ‘why don’t they ever give workshops to gay guys about being victims of rape too?’ While I was as careful as possible, I never saw the guy slip something in the drink.

I even watched the bar tender make the drink. anyway, I lied there completely paralysed while this pervert was lubing up. I locked eyes with his for a moment, and that’s when it happened.

A very large and angry drag queen opened the door of the vehicle and beat the s*** out of my attempted rapist.

She and her other drag friends helped dress and care for me while the police arrived.

I was saved by a group of guardian drag queens. They were basically the modern day ‘angels from heaven.’

Many were quick to praise the drag queen's actions.

According to Bored Panda, one commented:

I am so glad you were saved, but this image of an angry drag queen beating the guy up is one that will always make me smile.

Another said:

Drag queens saving all over the world.

However, Tumblr User I'm Gay So It's OK pretty much summed it up:
