Fighting game star Dominique “SonicFox” McLean took home the award for eSport Player of the Year at The Game Awards on Dec. 6.

SonicFox, 20, is an openly-queer gamer, rotating multiple fighting games in his roster in a community that is dominated by straight males.

After being told to wrap up his speech, SonicFox took the time to finish on a high note stating “I guess I just gotta say that I’m gay, black, a furry—pretty much everything a Republican hates—and the best esports player of the whole year, I guess!”

SonicFox took to Twitter later on in the evening to reaffirm his closing statement.
