Trans tag request
It is hard enough finding trans representation in our daily lives. With the LGBTQIA+ tag, one still needs to browse through channels and spend time in them to find trans streamers. A "trans" tag would help people searching for these communities.
Today we are rolling out 350+ tags, including the transgender tag, to provide you with more options on how you express yourself and your content, so that you can more easily connect with one another and build wonderful communities. We are really appreciative for all of the feedback around this topic (and other related suggestions).
We previously told you that we had a better solution to this request than adding the tag, and we were wrong. This has been one of the most popular requests we’ve heard, and the simple truth is that we should have done this sooner. In an effort to think carefully about how to best address this, we only made the situation more difficult. Again, thank you for helping us throughout this process in reevaluating our stance.
Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice, as well as any suggestions for additional tags you feel we may have missed! We are working to invest more into this forum and aim to have faster communications in the future.

Trans visibility matters! <3
This is needed. There are only good things that can come from a Trans tag. Not wanting people to be targeted is not a proper defense for not having the tag when channels are entirely self moderated as it is. The trans community’s ability to find itself is diluted under the umbrella of the LGBTQIA tag and the added specificity of a trans tag will help foster a stronger bond within the already existing trans community while also showing potential new trans users that there is a space for them on your platform.
The trans community is requesting this tag and if they want it I want to support them in getting it!
Trans Representation Matters.
Community is so important. Representation is important. This can literally save lives and help our trans siblings to connect with each other.
A trans tag would help foster community amongst twitch users who desperately need that visibility.
This should been done a long time ago and happy this will be happening with trans being more visible and will be looking forward to seeing them
I very much would love to see this tag!
Having a trans tag would be amazing! Support our trans family on twitch <3
Would love to see trans appreciation, trans visibility, trans needs and rights finally recognized only a major platform.
Long past time that they added that to show the trans community that they care about them to.
Please make this happen!!! It's such a simple but meaningful thing to do to help the Trans community on Twitch!
This is such an obvious thing to do. Get it done, Twitch.
As a cis-het white dude, I want to make things easier for our trans friends! Twitch communities are a good safe place that people can use, we should make it easier.
Come on Twitch, it's about time, we need valid trans representation on twitch.
