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!
I feel having a trans tag would be a huge benefit for my community and will help us connect with each other and find support. Having the choice to become more visible will improve my experience on Twitch and grow my channel.
Also tbh I worry often if I put 'trans' in my stream title that I'll be reported or banned for inappropriate words. A lot of key ***** words are censored in the chats and it's a constant reminder that they are seen as negative things. So having a trans tag will give me confidence that my community is being given a real platform to stand on.
If the conversation ever turns to 'safety' then believe me, there is safety in numbers
(EDIT: After posting this note..... the word q-u-e-e-r was censored.......... point proven)
Who's the transphobe at Twitch that's keeping this (the second highest-rated idea on all of Twitch's Uservoice) from happening after two years??
Knock knock...who's there? Ya'll getting on making a trans tag.
It so simple and would help out so many streamers. Can we please implement this tag ASAP and represent this large part of out community properly?
trans streamer here..... of course we need a trans tag ???
I don't understand how this has yet to go through/update. LGBTQ+ tag is not sufficient enough and there needs to be a trans tag. It makes no sense to me as to how you would "support" LGBTQ+ but not trans.
As a trans streamer, this absolutely needs to happen! An LGBTQA+ tag is inclusive, sure, but vague. Finding and connecting with trans members of this community is something that could be beneficial for absolutely everyone.
It's baffling that this is still yet to happen. Read all these comments. Having nothing to share is not good enough; be transparent and tell us why this still hasn't been implemented.
I'm not trans but my best friend is and seeing the tag bring them viewership just seems right. Do the right thing Twitch! I'd love to see this happen!
Dear Twitch, please sort this out! It isn't a big job, but it is VERY important!
It’s important to recognize that with this request comes equal standards that Twitch will need to meet. I feel that the better solution here would be to keep the LBGTQ+ tag and add a SUB TAG of the preferred sexual orientation the streamer wants to be recognized as. That way everyone in the LBGTQ+ has an equal opportunity to take part in this change. Just because trans are rarer to find it doesn’t mean we should be biased. We are all still “members” of the Queer family. Requesting a specific trans tag WILL bring issues to the platform. We’re better off requesting a sub tag in which everyone can have the option to choose from. The problem with the LBGTQ+ tag currently is that allies of the community are tagging themselves within it. That’s not what the tag is for.... If you’re not a member of the community you shouldn’t be “categorizing” yourself under the tag. With all of that being said, voting for this is still a must! It’s still something that needs awareness to be brought up about. 🏳️🌈
It's really bewildering to me that we still haven't seen any update or action on this. Please add this tag. A tag would BY FAR be the easiest way for trans people to find other trans people on Twitch.
Let 2021 be the year we get a trans tag!! Please twitch, let us have another way to find and make safer communities on your wonderful platform <3
Having a safe space for those who stream is very important. Especially to the trans streamers. As an ally, I would love to see trans people be lifted onto this platform with love and support and be accepted for who they are!
@lady_faelloryn no. Allies are already perfectly visible and nobody needs any more clout for simply giving trans people basic respect. That's what everyone should be doing anyway. No more hero cookies and free social capital for doing the bare minimum.
Hi, i feel like when you responded that you are taking all the feedback into consideration that it is a lie. The reason why is because everyone here is wanting a trans tag so that they could label themselves properly. yall say that we have to be patient bu i would like to point out that yall took away tags very fast such as the blind playthrough tag because it "offended people" when really it didnt offend anyone and then yall replaced the tags yall took out with brand new tags that people can use in substitute. So the question is, if Twitch can create and take away tags in a blink of an eye, then what is taking yall so long to create a simple trans tag to help label themselves accordingly?
I really want a trans tag so that I can find and support trans streamers as an ally and a Demisexual.
please give us a trans tag <3
No questions asked. It's a great tool - gotta support!
This is so desperately needed. Trans folks need to find streamers like themselves and this will help with safety. The LGBTQIA tag is not sufficient.
