Twitch is adding more than 350 new community tags next week, related to gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality, ability, and mental health, according to their official blog post.

Twitch had seemed reluctant to add a transgender tag in the past due to concerns it would lead to targeted harassment and toxicity, but admitted that “the simple truth is we should have done this sooner.”

“When we launched tags in 2018, we did so to boost discovery, to help creators describe their content and to help viewers find streams they’re interested in,” the blog post states. “We intentionally designed that system for creators to be able to describe what they were streaming, not who they were or what they stood for. We have maintained this distinction since that time, and we were wrong.”

 “It took us too long to embrace that there should have been hundreds of ways for creators to share who they are and issues they care about,” they wrote. “The Twitch community is incredibly diverse and the tags available to creators should reflect and celebrate that.”
