Disabled tag request
Disabled gamers often face more or different hardships than abled streamers do. There are so many amazing users on Twitch who are disabled, and they deserve a "disabled" tag. Disabled streamers need a way to find each other and weave our communities together, and disabled viewers need a way to find streamers they want to watch and connect with.
We’re really excited to share that not only have we added a “Disabled” tag, but we have also added more than 350 other tags to Twitch. If you feel we missed anything pertinent, please let us know.
For more information, you can take a look at our blog post at https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2021/05/26/celebrate-yourself-and-your-community-with-350-new-tags/. Please continue to share ideas and feedback you have to UserVoice!

I have a question about this. Would this tag mean physically disabled, mantally disabled or both? Because there's a big difference between these and I think they should have separate tags.
Finally they are adding it
Finally under consideration.
Please add this!
You can't say "disabled might be bullied" when WE the disabled want it!
Thousands more votes here:
Remember this is for people that want to use it which is thousands of people.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE IT! Don't complain for those that strongly want it!
So many of us want it. We can find each other easily!
People can not use it or ban any nasty people but the same can be said about the LGBTQIA tag. People can get nasty people coming in. But they can ban them or not use it!
It is a choice, and one we WANT!
For people like me and other disable people i thing this should help a lot but can be used in a bad way for other person
Disabled people are an important part of the video games community! Help them be more discoverable and on equal footing with more abled gamers!
This is a really important tag that should be added. I am a disabled artist that lives with severe carpal tunnel that impacts my streams, and being a proud autistic person sharing my special interests is a key part of my streams too. To have the disability tag would be wonderful, @ Twitch admins reading this!! :) Thank you!
Be inclusive, add a disabled tag.
People, make sure you share this page all over social media. More attention the better.
They once claimed we could get targeted but then added a lgbtqia+ tag and often people get the same targeting we would so why can't we have a tag?
We can choose not to use it or ban people!
There were 2 petitions too with thousands of votes. We want a disabled tag!!
Please add this tag.
This would be a great addition for my friends! Please add this tag!
As an openly autistic streamer, i NEED this tag.
Let's make it happen folks!!!
This is extremely important as disabled people as a whole make up 25% of America's population, yet we see the lowest amount of representation in many plateforms.
Having to find other disabled creators through other plateforms first is time consuming. We have limited energy most of the time and this tag would greatly help us connect with others who face similar issues.
Why hasn't this been added already. Disabled tags can help connect other disabled streamers and be beneficial to communities.
This would be very helpful for my friends and myself.
as a disabled streamer myself; yes pls!
Being a social worker, I completely support this motion & needs to happen for everyone to feel included and welcome in the gaming community. SIGNED!
Seeing as there are a lot of Disabled people on twitch trying their best to create content (which they do), in my opinion it would be a really smart, but also important feature.
Signed, We need this!
As a disabled streamer, please give disabled tag!
This would mean a lot to many streamers and viewers.
