We are absolutely delighted to announce that, following a marathon gaming session that ran over two weekends in February, gamer Ed “SuperSweetBoy” Sweet has raised an incredible £3,050 towards the care of trans youth, via the GenderGP Fund.

Ed, SuperMario and Co, were joined by moderators @ar_crat @TenTinyKittens @ThaeInTwilight and members of the GenderGP team as well as @CaseyExplosion, @AnitaSarkeesian and several others. Together they honed their racing skills, put their music knowledge to the test and, crucially, talked about access to healthcare for trans youth.

We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part, watched, donated and shared. Together they helped to raise awareness of the challenges facing trans youth in the UK today as well as essential funds, which will go directly towards the treatment of young people whose care has been impacted by the recent high court ruling.

The GenderGP Fund has been designed to help young people access psychological support, puberty blockers, hormones and expert advice. Find out more by visiting the Fund section of our website.

The event resulted in almost 100 donations, with Ed himself contributing a whopping £150 to the fund to replace the admin fees deducted by PayPal.

Ed concluded his endeavour by thanking everyone who took part and hinted that he might revisit the challenge in 2022.

Thank you SuperSweetBoy – you really are awesome. 

Note: The GenderGP Fund has been temporarily paused as we review additional methods to better serve the transgender and non-binary community.
