LGBTQ Byte

One of the things I’ve noticed, and one of the things we offer that tiktok hasn’t, is not only acknowledgement, but active acceptance and encouragement of LGBTQ+ creators. I think that might be part of the key to keeping the hype up- making people feel genuinely accepted for who they are, instead of being accepted DESPITE of who they are. Does that make sense?

There is a brand new LGBTQ+ category added just today. So that’s something

Some old categories made a reappearance as well

That’s what prompted this.
I know that an awful lot of gay creators on tiktok felt shadow banned and silenced, and some of them have been bullied on the app.

I honestly think that the LGBTQ+ category on byte is a pretty cool n good idea. I know a lot of friends who are bi, pan, trans, gay, and such, and this, is a great idea, as a straight ally myself. I’d like to thank Dom (or anyone on the Byte dev team), to bring this to light. :stuck_out_tongue:
