Queer Black Furry Raises $22K for Trans Kids by Playing Mortal Kombat for 72 Hours Straight

SONIC FOX aka Dominique  McLean has been making waves since before being crowned best esports player at The Game Awards in 2018 where he delivered a heartfelt and moving speech about being LGBTQ.  

McLean finished that speech with the crowd pleaser:

“I’m gay, black, a furry—pretty much everything a Republican hates.”

Now McClean’s made history, raising $22,000 for the LGBTQ youth charity The Trevor Project,which advocates for LGBT+ young people and runs a confidential suicide hotline for LGBTQ youth.

McLean raised the money during a three-day Twitch livestream.

According to Pink News, “fans donated more than $22,000 over the course of the three-day livestream, as he played through the story modes of Mortal Kombat 9, 10 and 11, as well as Injustice 1 and 2.”

Key donation thresholds saw SonicFox writing messages like “trans rights” on his chest, before shaving his moustache after smashing the $20,000 donations barrier.

After concluding his three-day stream, SonicFox tweeted: “We did it everybody! Together, we raised 22,150$ for the Trevor Project in 72 Hours.

“This will be a very special moment in my life for years to come, and I hope to do things like this more often. Thank you all for this very magical moment. TRANS RIGHTS!!!!”

The Trevor Project said: “Thank you so much for supporting our life-saving work and being a role model for LGBTQ youth in the gaming community! ❤️💛💚💙💜
