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.
As promised – just checking in to let you all know that we haven’t forgotten you. We still do not have anything to share, but the team is reading all of your feedback to take into consideration. Thank you all for your continued patience!
Make this happen, Twitch!
Long over due!
A trans tag is a good idea & should be implemented
your excuse of "it would invite harassment" is quite frankly pathetic. if you cared about harassment on your platform, you would moderate your own chat during large events, and would take steps to ensure the creators that you feature as pogchamp or on the front page are protected from racists and bigots. the trans community WANTS this tag.
This is much needed!!
Saying "we haven't forgotten you" isn't enough. Please add the Trans tag, as requested by the very members of this community, and let them decide what is good for them.
Please do the right thing and make this tag available. It's a simple change that will have tremendous benefit in terms of allowing people to self-identify and find their community, which is what makes Twitch a powerful platform and a place where people can feel empowered and welcome.
Echoing the comment of Rachnovak below as she has put it perfectly: <3
“In the spirit of inclusivity, this tag should be included. Having a tag allows members of the trans community to find streamers that they identify with and to have a safe space on the internet without the fear of facing transphobia. It's sad the website hasn't implemented something like this yet. Do better for the people on your platform.”

Absolutely needed. "We haven't forgotten you." You removed "blind" playthrough in a day & made" virgin" & "simp" no no words all since you updated in October. Empty talk. Your priorities are not in order.
The trans community needs this tag. Please provide it. It should be THEIR decision, and their decision only, on if they want to use it and put themselves out there. Being a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself, I have seen transphobia from other members in the community. A trans user should not have to sift through 100's of LGB streamers to find 1 trans streamer. Twitch withholding this tag from the trans community is an act of censorship, NOT protection. Please give them what they have been asking for. Twitch has no right to make these decisions for the trans community when they still allow racist, homophobic, transphobic, and ableist usernames to be created on their site. You removed Blind Playthrough in a day, you can add the Trans Tag just as fast. Do better please.
Last time you even addressed this thread was in October. We have over 5000 votes. We have 630 comments! You can't possibly argue this isn't wanted by the community. We shouldn't have to fight this hard, just to be able to have a tag on our channels. Even the media is picking up on this before you, and they only notice trans people when things are Really Bad. Twitch, what the ****?
Why is there no tag yet? People who struggle like this should be able to find welcoming communities. They shouldn't have to search through thousands of other streamers to find the one that they can feel comfortable and understood at. There are a ton of trans people on twitch, more than some of the existing tags get used, so it really doesn't make a lot of sense to not add a tag.
It doesn't set a difficult precedent for other tags, even if it did, you're a private company, you can just say no when pedos try to get their own tag. Giving a trans tag to the community is simply a way of saying "hey, let's help you find somewhere you're wanted. You shouldn't have to put up with all the hate and discrimination from these other streamers you've been chased from."
Be an ally. Twitch. Please.
Pls add the tag
Get it together and add this tag! It’s 2021 FFS
Let's make this happen! It's 2021!!!
Adding a tag doesn’t force it to be used, not adding it like this shows your true colours though.
You guys at twitch transphobic or what? You can answer that by ignoring us some more, dw.
Honestly, I'm signing this yet again because it's taking too **** long!! Come on Twitch!
Yesterday someone in my community came out to me as trans, and explained they didn't even know where to go for help. They hadn't even heard of The Trevor Project or any of the programs out there to help them deal with this turbulent time of their life. I am not trans myself, and even though I am ******** and part of the LGBTQ+ community, I absolutely 100% cannot relate to the journey they are on. PEOPLE LIKE THIS IS WHY WE NEED A TRANS TAG. Imagine if I could easily lead this person to a streamer and community who knows EXACTLY what they are going through?
Are there concerns over bullying from using the tag? Sure, but guess what...I get trolled on Twitch using the LGBTQ+ tag already. I still choose to use it. That's the beautiful part...our Trans community members can CHOOSE to use it or CHOOSE not to. But the ones that do? They may literally save lives simply by being on the screen and found so easily. Please just do it already.
