Myself and partner in crime EbonixSims created a platform a couple of months ago to highlight black twitch creators in the UK.
As much as we embrace having a diverse community and we encourage this; it was really important that we created this platform as our voices and stories were not being uplifted or highlighted in the community that we are a part of.
Within a short time, our platform has had a lot of support and we’ve found some amazing content creators in the UK who we want to support.
Of course, as soon as you’re doing anything black in a space where you are a minority. You will get the negativity straight away “why isn’t there white girl gamers?” etc. We address that and more in the panel and what we want to cover in the upcoming months.
Let us know what you think and ways we can bring some seasoning to the platform.
