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.

please !! myself and a majority of my friends and fellow streamers are also trans and would love to be able to squad up in the same tag !!! and to find other fellow members of the community that are also trans !!
make! it! happen! NOW!
This tag absolutely needs to exist. Let's support our gamer brothers and sisters!
There’s no reason for this tag to not exist already.
Please add this tag finally.
This is long overdue. It's so easy to add a "Hot Tub" category, but not this?
The tag needs to be made now. Ridiculous that it’s taken this long, there is no excuse.
trans people deserve to feel like they are just as welcome as anyone else. implement this. now.
It’s crazy that after thousands of votes and comments this still hasn’t been implemented! It’s ridiculous honestly
It’s been too long, get it done now
The time for this was months ago. What’s T
cut the **** and let's get this happening NOW. #transtagnow
This was first proposed how long ago? And you approved a "coquettishly sidestep the ToS" tag essentially overnight. Your silence, and sense of priority, speaks volumes. #transtagnow
I like going into streams where I know I'm not going to have to hear stuff hating my existence. Even the lgbt tag isn't great for finding those streams. An easy way to find people like me would be nice. #transtagnow
OH come ON already. You add a hot tub section to save your bloody revenue, but can't even give trans people a tag? Come on. Quit dragging your feet and add in the trans tag. #transtagnow
Mariah Carey says trans rights! Give them the tag... NOW!
#transtagnow what else is there to consider??? adding a new category to sit in water seemed easy enough. its been TWO YEARS.
Imagine debating between the impact of humane and supportive action and hot tubs.
Support us and don't pull some terrible PR stunt during Pride to make it worse than already is, please.
If you can add a hot tub category you can add a trans category.
No excuse will suffice.
Also, why no further responses after the first?
