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.

*sigh* yes please
Twitch, it's time to take action, not just "taking feedback into consideration". Give us the Trans Tag!
Twitch LITERALLY made a 'hot tub' section on twitch just to make more money and refuse to make a simples 'trans' tag to help our community!
If this is not transphobia, idk what is
****** identity and gender identity are totally different from each other, so including a tag to narrow it down just makes sense!
Insane that this hasn’t been implemented yet...
Am cisgendered and it is abhorrent it has taken you this long already. Let's do some good
Come on Twitch - do better.
So you can add a category for hot tub streamers (who are also prone to receiving harassment) but adding a trans tag is an issue because of the possibility of harassment..? The cracks in your justifications are showing, Twitch...
yall literally gave us the hot tub category that no one asked for before the trans tag we've asked about for literal years. Do better.
Trans tag when?
I got a notification that "Pools, Hot Tubs, and Beaches category is live today."and it was added as a short term solution... so where is the same respect for the trans creators? Where is the global community discoverability tools for Trans people?
[checks watch] I think it's time to add the tag.
Add the tag.
It’s embarrassing for twitch that they refuse to allow their viewers ease of discovering new streamers. Don’t u want people to use ur platform?
So uh, something happening or what? 'cause it's long overdue now.
Bringing back '/me' is already 'under consideration' and the request is not even ONE MONTH OLD! While the 'trans tag' is TWO YEARS, 11K VOTES and we got only a simple 'we MIGHT do something' from Twitch.
WE WANT OUR COMMUNITY TO RELATE TO US!
GIVE US THE TRANS TAG
Trans tag when, Twitch?
Still Waiting, Twitch. Trolls are gonna keep finding marginalised communities no matter what, your argument is invalid and frankly BS. Give us the tag we NEED.
If you're worried that this will bring hate to trans streamers, maybe consider actually enforcing your harassment policies...?
Please stop giving us the run around Twitch and instead do what is being asked. We want a trans tag yesterday. Just do it. No excuses. Just do it.
