The black community has always deserved representation in every single space that we exist in. There are content creators who feel invalidated because we are unable to find other members of the black community on Twitch, especially during a time that we need to stand as one. The black community deserves representation, validation and acknowledgment. We deserve a black tag so that we can find, communicate and uplift each other.
Please create the black tag.
We have heard your feedback and are really excited to announce that we now have a Black tag on Twitch, along with more than 350 other new tags.
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!

Let's make it happen; representation and community building is so important! Come on Twitch, it's time to move forward; this is an easy step to take and one that will matter.
Allow Black creators to connect and uplift one another. It is about time. Representation matters. Do your part, Twitch.
The Black Tag, much like the Trans and Disabled Tags, is long overdue on the platform. It will not cause any more harassment than Black creators already have deal with on the platform. Let Black Creators have a tool to find each other on the platform rather than needing third-party services. Time to grow up and do the right thing.
Twitch, help people find their people. We identify more with people who look like us or share the same traits as us. Do your part, twitch.
yeah add the tag
As a white ally, I have an extremely hard time finding POC creators and I want to be able to support them as much as possible, so I think this is a great idea to implement.
hey, twitch, now’s a great time to add a very long overdue Black tag. It gives Black creators a voice and helps viewers find communities that they feel more comfortable in
I'd love this tag as a way for members of the Twitch community to find streams and communities similar to theirs. It would give a voice to Black creators, and allow for them to have their own space.
I believe the black community contributes so much to Twitch, amongst other platforms, and continues to be unrecognized for the talented people within the community. A black tag would not only empower, but also ensure a safe space for the black community. Make this happen!
Don't ignore this, Twitch.
Viewers often come to streams to find a safe space with creators they trust and have commonalities with. The Black tag is imperative to boosting black creators' voices on this platform.
Let black folks organise on your platform ******** it.
Hey Twitch, the Black tag is an absolute must! This is long overdue. Listen to our voices and add it! We want to uplift and support each other, the tag would allow so many creators to be heard. Add the tag.
This is so important to the Black community. Please do your part to uplift creators with marginalized identities!
This tag would be So SO sO amazing for all streamers!!! It would further personalize the twitch platform entirely! TWitch we need this please!!!
Black viewers should be able to find creators who look like them/understand common struggles and feel safer and more comfortable when they join a stream. A Black tag will help make sure this is possible and connect Black content creators with their audience.
We also need a Trans tag for the same reasons.
Every person of every race, ***, gender religion, etc. deserves a voice and to have the uniqueness of their voice heard and acknowledged. Black creators have a unique perspective, and they should be able to identify as such for others to find and follow. Integral parts of people's identity shouldn't be missing.
My dudes, just add the tag. Twitch needs to have a black tag for the black creators please please please please my dudes.
having this is important for the same reason the LGBTQ+ tag is important! discoverability and representation matter
The fact that there is no Black or Trans tag on twitch yet is criminal. All metaphors aside, PLEASE wake up twitch!
