Lucy, who shot to fame on The X Factor back in 2012, explained in a lengthy caption:  ‘Our holiday lasted 2.5 days. I was SO looking forward to Malta and one of the reasons was because I’d heard it was so LGBT friendly and progressive. 

‘So many people recommended it and said they’d had such a good time. First day we arrived we realised we’d landed in the wrong part of town – every other bar was a ‘gentlemen’s club’ and it was clearly a party destination, and everywhere we went someone shouted ‘lesbians’ at us.

‘(I shouldn’t have to say this but we weren’t holding hands and both looked pretty femme, didn’t even have tattoos out so these blokes have some gaydar)

‘The woman on the desk in the first hotel said she completely understood why we didn’t want to stay there and let us leave early.’

She continued: ‘Same day we went to a restaurant in Valletta where the waiter said: ‘the way you girls are sitting is so sexy, you are making us all hard’ Yeah. Word for word. 

‘It makes me so angry that all we could do was f**king laugh in disbelief and calmly ask for the bill, he said ‘don’t leave, stay here’ and to diffuse the situation I said ‘we have more to discover here’ to which he said: ‘How about I discover her with you’.

‘Next up we went to the new hotel where the balcony door didn’t lock. Called reception to tell them, the man says: ‘Maintenance will fix it tomorrow’ 

‘And we said… ‘We don’t want to stay in a room that doesn’t lock?!’ He said ‘don’t worry, this area is very safe’ I said ‘that it may be, but we are not sleeping in a room that doesn’t lock’ 

‘He said ‘I don’t get your point, madam’ and continued for 30 mins to argue about having a f**king lock on a balcony door. 

‘Later that evening some local men were sat down where we ordered an ice cream – as soon as we sat down they started doing the international first and middle finger scissor bashing sign for lesbians whilst shouting in our direction. There were quite a few other things to add but caption’s done. 

‘I am sick to f**king death of feeling threatened as a woman. Sick to f**king death of feeling threatened as a lesbian. I am sick to f**king death of being spoken down to by men across the globe. 

‘Came home and went to the spa. Malta was beautiful, but experience was not,’ she signed off.

Alongside snaps of her on holiday, she penned: ‘I have been blown away by the incredible influx of love from the Maltese community who are so upset by our experience, including the minister for equality in Malta.

‘I appreciate that we had a terrible experience there and not everyone has. I really wish (probably more than anyone) that our time had been better.

‘As always, there are some people reacting as they naturally would to a woman’s story with ‘I don’t believe her’ – yours is the most dangerous response of all.

‘Another common one was ‘well, I’ve been there X times and I’ve never had any trouble’

‘YOUR lived experience does not affect MY lived experience. It never will.’

She went on: ‘If you don’t believe anything that has never happened to you, you are an ignorant b*****d with very little empathy.

‘The difference between saying ‘I’m so sorry that happened to you’ and ‘that never happened to me’ is vast and important.’

Speaking about coming home, Lucy continued: ‘I am thankful that you many of you have had a safe and enjoyable time in Malta, it’s a real pleasure to hear the lovely stories and I can tell, by the response of so many Maltese people, we ran into some that do not represent the good.

‘For the doubters, neither of us had left the UK for two years, our first trip away together and it was less stressful to just come home rather than stay. It felt safer to just come home rather than stay.

‘We chose spending money on new flights and 9 degrees with wind and rain in the UK over it. We came back on Monday – it took me 4 days to consider whether or not I’d post about our experience because of how stressful it was.’

‘The musician concluded: ‘Thank you to all the kind people who reached out including @bonnicio. I appreciate your words and understanding.

‘I have nothing more to say about our experience, but alongside it I do hope that my post opened up conversation around the fact that as an LGBTQ+ person, and as two women travelling, I have to extensively research my holiday destinations to ensure we will be safe wherever we go.

‘That is something I do every time I travel. LGBTQ ‘Friendly’ would be a win, but we are actually looking for LGBTQ Safe.’

It comes after Lucy previously opened up about the shocking abuse she received from online trolls about her love of tattoos.

‘And I was like ‘whaaaaaaaat’ as I’d never had that kind of comment before?’ There’s an entire AMAZING Instagram dedicated to the s**t people say to athletic women and it rocks my world.’ 

Called You Look Like a Man, the page even has its own selection of merchandise, which Lucy is clearly a big fan of.
