Trans people are a very marginalised group. it is hard for us to find others like us and places where we can feel safe. Twitch has an LGBTQIA+ tag, but sadly even there we sometimes encounter transphobia. Being able to see and interact with other people like us makes us feel less outcast and more accepted in the world, and gives us spaces to talk about some of the very complex issues we deal with and be understood.
If you have a twitter account, Tweet @twitch and tell them we need a trans tag and we need it now. Include the hashtag #transtagnow. While you're at it, rally your followers to the cause!
Vote and Comment
Go to the request page and tell Twitch why you support a trans tag. Don't just vote, leave an actual comment!. You'll need a twitch account to do this.
Spread the word
Let people know that twitch is ignoring trans people! Share this on social media, mention it in your streams, help amplify our voices, and make it impossible to ignore us.
We are trying to get Twitch to add a #trans tag for streamers to use. A request for such a tag was made on March 4 2019, which is two years ago and other than some insincere "we are listening" posts, Twitch is still to move on it, despite the request being one of the most voted for requests in their system.
We want more from Twitch than lip service on inclusivity. We want action. We want a trans tag.
