Starting next week, Twitch will add more than 350 tags to its category of programs related to gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality, potential, mental health, and other categories, the company said. post on blog Friday.
The new tag list includes transgender, Black, Disabled, Old, and Vtuber, among others, said Twitch. It also removes “ally” references in the LGBTQIA + tag in favor of an independent brand. In a blog post, Twitch thanked locals for pushing for a volunteer transgender license:
