Session

Being Political on Twitch


This panel is concerned with addressing the importance of being political as a creator, as the representative of a business or organization, and as a streamer. The purpose of this talk is to help empower people by talking openly about the risks and gains of struggling in a landscape that demands conformity and the continued repression of identities.

We'll talk about whether a Twitch channel constitutes a public or private space (and what that means on the Internet), why these discussions are important, what free speech is and isn't, and how people can challenge and engage in politics.
