plus size tag
I think it's great that 'body positive' will now be one of the stream tags, but it would be helpful to also include 'plus size' as one of the stream tags. Body positivity can represent a wide range of body types, however this would most likely not highlight those that are on the higher end of the spectrum. Those that are a size 20+. It would also give greater visibility to a group that is often marginalized within society. Adding 'plus size' as one of the tags will take the 'body positive' tag one step further and help those who are plus size find their communities easier.
Super excited to share that this tag is now live on the site!
Thank you so much for this feedback and let us know if there are any other tags you would like to see on the site!

I don't know if there's any real consensus on the issue, but while I support a tag of this kind, I don't know if I'd want it to be called plus size. I personally prefer "fat" myself (although I know many dislike this term); plus size doesn't feel like me. It's also almost assumed to refer to women, and I'm nonbinary, so I'd be worried about more misgendering :(
I would love to see this implemented!
This is awesome, we need MORE representation as a community.
Body positivity covers such a wide range of body experiences that enabling streamers to state which are also plus size allows those of us in plus size bodies to find each other
This is a great idea!! Would love to see this!
Wonderful. i support this
I agree! Adding the 'plus size' tag would be beneficial to the Twitch platform by helping viewers and creators find a supportive community!
I would love to see this tag. Plus size would be a beautiful addition to the twitch community .
Would love to see this happen!
As a member of the plus size community I’m always looking for other who share my experiences and adding this tag would be so beneficial
This is an amazing suggestion that will allow community members to find the group they're looking for more easily.
This ABSOLUTELY should be included on Twitch. It would be a great addition and would really benefit the plus size community!
I support this fully. Body positive is too vague/broad. Plus size is very specific and I love that. Definitely should be included in this mass tag addition to help those in this category find and support each other more easily.
Yes we need more specific diversity of tags!
Yasss <3 love it. A huge "DING **** Darling" (Val Garland, from Glow up) from me.
I think this is a great idea. As someone who is a size 20+ person, it would be nice to have that.
I love this <3 As a plus-sized streamer myself I think that it would be beneficial to help us find and support other creators that share the same experience, plus, it could make our community just feel a little safer.
Love the idea! <3
