Trans streamers share how Twitch’s new identity tags have helped them: ‘They do a world of good’
At the end of May, Twitch finally brought long sought after identity tags to the streaming platform.
Over 350 tags were introduced – with more added since – which focus on various identities: from transgender and other LGBT+ tags, to disabled, Black, and many more.
It was the trans community, however, that led the charge for these tags to be added to the platform: in the form of various campaigns.
For over two years, streamers including Nikatine, MiaByte and MSTRSSFOX campaigned for the inclusion of a trans tag to allow for visibility on Twitch so that trans streamers and viewers could more easily find one another.
YOU fought so hard, for so long, and today we can ALL enjoy the success that those actions have created.
