Celebrate Pride Month with LGBTQIA+ creators on Twitch

Update July 1: Celebrate Pride Month with LGBTQIA+ creators on Twitch

Update July 1: We heard you! The Pride emotes you’ve earned are now permanent, and to give you a little more time to unlock them all, we’re extending Pride MegaCheers through July 5. Plus, Pride Cheermotes are now permanent as well! For more info, check out our Pride MegaCheer help article.

Pride month starts now, and everyone is invited to celebrate. In honor of the diverse voices who call Twitch home, we’re doubling down on supporting LGBTQIA+ creators and their communities by featuring a new streamer every day on the homepage. You can check out the full schedule at the end of this post, so tune in and you may discover a new favorite!

Showing your support as a streamer

****The Trevor Project’s research shows that 1.5 million LGBTQ young people are in crisis or consider suicide every year in the United States alone. Your contribution helps them serve more of these young people who need and deserve support.

Here’s how The Trevor Project does good with your donations.

  • $5 funds 5 minutes of free, confidential crisis counseling for LGBTQ+ youth

  • $25 helps them train crisis counselors to best serve youth

  • $50 empowers them to support 1 LGBTQ youth in crisis on text, chat, or phone

  • $100 supports TrevorSpace, providing a platform for peer support for global LGBTQ youth

If you’re a streamer, you can help by signing up (you’ll need a Tiltify account) to fundraise on Tiltify by clicking here. Raise $500 or more and receive a limited edition “Play for Pride” t-shirt, only available when fundraising for The Trevor Project on Twitch through Tiltify. You can see the shirt at the bottom of the link in this paragraph. If you have any questions or would like to be connected directly with The Trevor Project please reach out to

Showing your support as a viewer

Show your support for creators, earn exclusive emotes for yourself and your fellow community members, and contribute to Twitch’s donation to The Trevor Project with Pride MegaCheer! From June 4–30, you can MegaCheer by cheering with 200 or more Bits in any Affiliate or Partner channel in a single Cheer.

You’ll earn two of 20 exclusive Pride emotes for yourself and unlock a gift of an emote that other viewers in the channel will receive randomly. The larger the MegaCheer, the greater the number of people that will receive an emote gift. These exclusive emotes can only be used in the month of June 2019. Whenever you use a MegaCheer, we’ll donate $0.10 for every 200 Bits cheered to The Trevor Project, up to a total donation of $150,000.

The creators you support with your Cheers receive the same share of Bits. Twitch is making the donation based on the Bits viewer’s Cheer. Pride MegaCheer starts on June 4 at 11:00AM PT and ends on June 30 at 10:00PM PT. Got more questions? Your answers are here.
