Event details

Fundraising for Mermaids UK

Ciara Maxey was a musician, an artist, and a great friend.

Ciara was an active and vibrant member of the UK Android: Netrunner community, which is how many of us got to know her. She was passionate about music, art and card games and shared this passion enthusiastically with everyone she spoke to.

​​​​​​Tragically, Ciara also spent a significant amount of her life battling with severe depression and took her own life, aged just 24, on August 28th 2018.

As a trans woman, Ciara faced social and systematic stigma and prejudice, but took this in her stride and fought not just for her own rights but supported others also struggling with similar difficulties.

In the days before her death, many of us in the UK Netrunner scene spent a fantastic weekend at the National Championships with our friend, Ciara. She was the brightest and happiest that she had been for many months, showing off her latest artwork and doing extremely well in the tournament. This is absolutely how we want to remember our friend and so we dedicate this fundraiser to her memory.

Your donations will support Mermaids, whose mission is supporting individuals and families through gender and identity issues.
