Not too long ago, we ran our first #SupportSmallStreams post in response to an ask we received on Tumblr. When we reached out to all of you in the community, it became startlingly clear just how necessary a list of inclusive Let’s Players was for everyone. And why not boost them here? There are literally thousands of Twitch streams and YouTube channels out there with potentially friendly spaces, including ours that recently launched. Just because we cultivate smaller communities right now doesn’t mean we aren’t looking for new gamers to join our teams. 💕
If you’re looking for Let’s Players on Twitch, YouTube, or both platforms who maintain spaces that are welcoming to those marginalized in the gaming industry, this is the spot to keep an eye on. We’ll continue to make an effort to curate this list for you, but we need your help in order to do it! Share the shit out of this post. That way, more Let’s Players will find out about it so we can boost them, too. See? It’s like a never-ending fist bump, only you’re getting a list of super cool spaces to follow.
A few of you asked whether we would run another one of these posts in the future. Don’t worry! The answer is unequivocally yes. We believe wholeheartedly in the hard work and dedication of small gaming communities, and we want to support you! Take your time getting that channel together or fiddling around with your new stream. We’ll be here to boost you once you’re ready to be included. Be sure to subscribe to our own YouTube and follow our Tumblr for updates on the next round!
