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!

A tag for black content creators would be valuable for supporting black creators and increasing their visibility, as well as allowing viewers to find the communities that they want to be a part of.
This is super important to help support black creators on this platform they deserve to have a community tag
The Black Community deserve to have Representation, accessibility, and visibility. The black tag would be one step towards that and it would finally show that Twitch cares about marginalized members of it's community!
I don't know why this isn't a tag already!
I absolutely support the idea - Identity is Content. Linking together, sharing experiences (as a similar community, AND with the greater Twitch community), etc. is super important.
This is so important year round, not just during February! Support your marginalized creators.
Why is this the only media content on the internet that doesn't let you make your own tags??? Add a Black Tag!
twitch, you need to do better. adding a black tag could be such a great step in the right direction. we all need to do more to uplift and support the black community, and twitch can do so much more very easily. so do it.
Twitch, support your marginalized creators.
I feel that having a Black tag is the least Twitch could do to help Black streamers. I haven't started streaming yet, but I wanted to see if there was a BIPOC or even just an "Asian" tag, to make my future streams more accessible, and not seeing these tags exist just doesn't feel right. Twitch needs a Black tag.
The energy and support in February was what needs to happen ALL. YEAR. ROUND!!!!! Keep this energy - give them representation!
The showcase on the frontpage in February was amazing. This tag would help keep that discoverability all year long! I heard from friends who were showcased that it helped them a lot!
Black creators being able to find each other is so important. It is not enough to feature them during Black History Month for clout and profit and then let them be hidden the rest of the year. All marginalized communities but especially the black community deserves to be easily seen, heard, and represented so that black creatives can be celebrated and uplifted.
To be abled to tag streams that are ran by Black content creators
