Add Disability Month Front Page Features
Twitch does an excellent job curating teams and featuring marginalized creators on the front page during identity based pride months. However, I've never seen one of these happen for disabled creators which I believe is a big missed opportunity.
Being a content creator as a disabled person adds a whole host of additional challenges, such as navigating algorithms that favor consistency with inconsistent bodies. Finding games and programs that are accessible for us for streaming, etc.
I would love to see Twitch uplift the hardworking disabled creators by also hosting a Disability Pride Month and highlighting disabled creators the way they do with Black History Month, AAPI month, LGBTQIA+ month, etc.
Yes I would love to see this!
Thank you so much for starting this campaign!
A big yes to this!
Yes yes yes!
This would be incredible! Disability Pride month is hardly ever recognised but the extra work that disabled content creators have to put in deserves so much praise and recognition!!
Representation is key
This would be amazing!
Please do this. Representation from every corner of the community is VASTLY important and this is long overdue.
Push up creators doing everything they can just to keep themselves going and praise them for their accomplishments. This is hard enough for normal people to do, let alone anyone with an obstacle to face internally.
PLEASE DO THIS, TWITCH.
Yes! This would be amazing!!
I want to see disability lose the stigma that comes with it, please make this a reality to lift up disabled voices!
I have heard people say, that ableism is like a last frontier. I agree. One way to combat that, is to amplify the voices of disabled people. But I want this to be diverse within the disabled community, we need a wide variety of representation, and methods to destigmatize what it is to be disabled.
This. Just, this.
Thank you for bringing this up!
Would love this
would love to see this happen!!!
