Dream reveals Pride Month donation amount following homophobia accusations
Just before Pride Month started (June 2021), on 30th May 2021, the infamous Minecraft speedrunner Dream finally admitted to cheating. Dream didn't stream on Twitch for a very long time, which led to accusations of homophobia. You see, at the start of June, Dream promised to donate "any money from subs, donations, bits, or otherwise from streaming this month" to an LGBTQIA+ non-profit called The Trevor Project.

On 30th June, however, Dream's Twitch channel went live with a Q&A Charity stream featuring George “GeorgeNotFound” Henry Davidson. Now, on 1st July 2021, Dream has revealed the amount raised for charity.

While many believed the Minecraft speedrunner and content creator, Dream, didn't do enough due to nearly no streaming, this might not be the case after all.

Dream took to Twitter to announce that a total of $140,000 is going to The Trevor Project. Dream explains: "This month with 2 streams and 3 Twitter/Discord podcasts we were able to raise $20,000 in subs, $60,000 in donations, and over $10,000 in ads from streaming. Totaling $90,000! Plus the promised contribution from the dteam of $50,000. $140,000 is all going to an LGBTQIA+ charity!"

In a follow-up tweet, Dream confirmed that the $140,000 is being donated to The Trevor Project, a charity dedicated to LGBTQIA+ youth.

The Trevor Project is an American non-profit which was: "Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25."
