The LGBTIQ+ community is rallying round a popular drag queen who had a heart attack on stage at a Perth club on Wednesday night.

Carman Contouri, also known as Graeme Rieusset, collapsed on stage during a show at The Court.

The Court’s management told how its “much-loved” performer was helped by three off-duty medical workers who gave lifesaving CPR to him at the Beaufort Street venue.

St John Ambulance confirmed they dispatched an ambulance to the venue after receiving a call at 9.50pm.

The patient, 56, was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital where they remains in a serious but stable condition.

The Court’s owner, Bree Maddox, said Rieusset was “doing very well and in good spirits”.

She added she was “incredibly impressed at the actions” her staff took to manage the situation.

All her staff are trained in first aid but three off-duty medical professionals “immediately jumped in” to assist Rieusset and provide care until the ambulance arrived.

Their actions allowed staff to manage the crowd and notify two of the senior managers, who were not on duty at the time, of the evolving situation.

The venue and Rieusset have received an outpouring of support from customers.

“You are all amazing and we thank you!” the bar told punters this morning on Facebook.

The Court management wrote how Carmen was recovering well in hospital.

“Graeme is awake and in good spirits today and we thank everyone for their well wishes and concerns,” the Court wrote on Facebook.

Maddox added that she wished Rieusset a “speedy recovery”.
