New York (The Verge) — YouTube CEO addresses LGBTQ community’s ongoing demonetization concerns theverge.com/2019/8/5/20755….
Members of YouTube’s LGBTQ community have raised concerns about their videos being demonetized seemingly because they fall under queer categories, but CEO Susan Wojcicki says that’s not the case.
Questions about the treatment of LGBTQ creators’ videos on the platform have been around for years. Creators like Rowan Ellis, Tyler Oakley, and Stevie Boebi vocalized their concerns and frustrations with YouTube seemingly hiding their videos and demonetizing their content in 2017. Then in June 2018, trans creator Chase Ross accused YouTube of age-gating and demonetizing his videos because he used the term “transgender” in his titles. Just a couple of months later, YouTube found itself in another controversy after anti-LGBTQ ads started appearing on videos from LGBTQ creators.
