A black furry video game player has won the Dragon Ball FighterZ title at the 2018 Evolution Championship Series – and instantly announced he was gay. Earlier this year, a video game was released which helps people to understand what it’s like to have gender dysphoria – but like most industries, there is still a great deal of progress to be made.
After Dominique “SonicFox” McLean cemented his fourth Evo title on Sunday, in front of hundreds of thousands of people at the Las Vegas event and online, he took his phone out and tweeted: “im gay.”
“Also the best dbfz player on this f**king planet dont forget it.”
Furries are people who enjoy dressing up in animal costumes, and McLean showed off his true self by putting on his blue fox head which he uses to demonstrate his furry persona (fursona) before he tweeted.
