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!
100% the amount of trans hate that circulates on twitch needs to be filtered out. This is a good start for safe spaces for our friends.
LGBTQIA+ is a great start, but I'm going to be honest. The T is 9 times out of 10 IGNORED when we put certain types of LGBTQIA+ people on higher pedestals than others. Trans people need more visibility. BIPOC Trans people as well. Visibility matters.
The trans community on Twitch is consistently relegated to the sidelines, without support or assistance or tools from Twitch to allow them to organize, create larger communities, and prosper. A tag, or some other way for communities to coordinate without the need for a "team", is sorely needed, and the Trans community deserves that opportunity.
Yessirrr or ma’am this would be great!
It’s a wonderful idea to uplift and support our more marginalized ***** family. My only concern is people utilizing the Trans tag to target more vulnerable individuals with either trolling, or unwanted fetishizing advances.
However, I think that’s up to us as a community to stop bullying where we see it, and Twitch to take bans, harassment, etc. very seriously particularly in sensitive cases like these.
Bright blessings! 🌙
Twitch repeatedly promotes and makes a point to it's streamers to support and foster our communities, this is our community.
Even within the "security" of the LGBTQIA+ community, trans streamers face a tremendous amount of negative attention and the addition of a trans tag would make it easier for trans streamers to find each other, giving them the ability to build a support network that they feel is most suitable for their own streaming communities.
Being a trans streamer can be scary and isolated, the simple addition of the trans tag can reduce that stress on a valuable and tragically under-represented group of talented streamers, it makes no sense to not impliment it in my view.
With LGBTQIA+ being such a broad terminology, it is important for our trans members to have visibility to the twitch community and people seeking a streamer they can relate to, and someone they can comfortably visit and feel like they are not alone.
It is incredibly important that we provide Visibility and support for our Trans brothers, sisters, and in-betweens. The LGBTQIA+ and Drag communities would not exist without Trans people.
Long overdue and much needed! We need Trans visibility and representation.
I think, in general, identifying individuals and streams that you relate to or discovery of like minded streamers on Twitch is a bit difficult. I think tags need to be expanded on, and perhaps regulated who is using what tag and why. There's a bunch of homophobic troll streamers using LGBTQIA+ tags.
The trans community of Twitch needs to be able to find each other, as trans viewers are safest when they can easily find other trans broadcasters. Trans streamers having the ability to be visibly trans, and have trans viewers be able to find them, is so important for making sure Twitch as a whole is safe.
I support trans rights!! Twitch please make this happen! The only reason I use this platform is because of the AMAZING LGBTQ+ streamers who make platform a welcoming and enjoyable place to be. Please recognize and support the trans members of our wonderful community. xx
TRANS LIVES MATTER, they deserve visibility and representation!
add a trans flag! i want to show support!
Visibility and representation are extremely important and a tag like this would help people navigate the platform to find more people who share their experience.
Totally agreed with this. They are pretty under-represented on the platform.
Visibility and representation are more vital than ever. Make this happen
Let's make it easier to find and support Trans streamers! Please add this tag!
It will help members of these communities and allies to find like minded people and safe channels. Please add the 'Trans' tag on twitch.
