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!

Who and what a creator is is part of their content. Just do it, Twitch. Give us a trans tag while you're in there. Thank you.
i dont see the reason to have a vote? just add the tag lmao what is this elementary school??
As a trans person fighting for the trans tag as well, it is equally as important to have a tag for black creators. Please listen to their voices!
Twitch needs to do better when it comes to uplifting the black community and their voices outside of black history month. A tag is one thing this community has been asking for so long. It shouldn’t take all these measures for one for be made on the website. Please do better.
PLEASE add this tag. Black creators deserve a platform just as much a popular streamers do. This is heavily overdue and this needs to change. We need to uplift one another and be supportive of each other.
This needs to be a thing! Black creators on all social media platforms never get the exposure that they need and are often left in the dark and forgotten!
This is love overdue. Black content creators deserve a tag so they can find & uplift one another.
Creating communities is a big part of what Twitch is. This is why it would be ESSENTIAL to include such a tag!
Wholeheartedly agree with what Ace has said. Show your commitment to Black streamers, Twitch!
Bring back some of the black history month things that were on the main page permanently. Black folks need to be connected and celebrated on this platform better!
we said what we said. ✨
Twitch, you lose nothing by adding a Black tag. Do it already.
Let's do this! Let's promote all our amazing and talented content creators.
You **** right I'm backing this! It would help so many people, and honestly, how can you say no to that? Black lives matter x
celebrate and promote black excellence on twitch all year round and not just during black history month!
Add the tag twitch.
A tag for Black creators would mean being able find other creators that I share a commonality with. Tracking use of the tag and using that as a focal point for analyzing user data might also allow you to pinpoint racial hate and trolling.
Having a tag specifically for the Black community is INCREDIBLY important to help build connections between streamers, help the growth of representation, and would help viewers find streamers that they can connect with as well as streamers find each other and build safe & supportive communities on Twitch.
As a Puerto Rican and black male I would love the option of being able to have more awareness more emotional understanding and more inclusivity when it comes to the black community in terms of art music gaming chatting anything really if it’s a way where we can move forward with open arms and more acceptance I’m all for it
Adding a Black tag would allow for more discoverability & visibility for Black creators. It would also make it easier for viewers to find streamers whose lived experiences are the same or similar to theirs.
Having a black tag is so important for increasing invisibility and support for the black community on Twitch. There are so many amazing creators that deserve to be seen and heard.
