Please give recommendations for trans gaming youtubers/streamers that I can put on in the background or watch when my brain doesn't wamna do anything. It can be you if you want this as an opportunity to plug yourself I don't mind algorithms just make it kinda hard to find gaming content that isn't a cishet white dude.
I didn't think I'd get this many replies! Thanks everyone <3 So many recommendations this is great!
If you want to find that sort of stuff easily go to Twitch, find a game category you like, and search "LGBTQIA+" in the "tags" section.
It's not perfect, but it's a decent place to start sometimes.

@lindenbow i rly like 80% relatable on youtube
– bound collective
@lindenbow here's a few: @/firstname.lastname@example.org, @/email@example.com, @/sharkNserg@plush.city::Connie (nb, unsure if they consider themself trans?), @/firstname.lastname@example.org (also nb, also unsure if they consider themself trans)
caaaan't think of any others off the tops of my heads. I want to get back into streaming sometime though (i am also nb and unsure if i consider myself trans)
@lindenbow (oh right i can delete and redraft to remove the ping)
@lindenbow We know a some trans streamers!
- https://www.twitch.tv/earlgraytay is a trans dude we know who streams a lot of Sims 2 and occasional other games
- https://www.twitch.tv/heartofaquamarine is an agender person who's currently playing through the original Metroid Prime after finishing Pikmin 1 and Mario Sunshine; they also sometimes do collage streams
- https://www.twitch.tv/fidgetcetera is a bit of a variety streamer; xey did a couple Minecraft streams recently, but they've streamed fighting games and various indie things in the past
- https://www.twitch.tv/starrysunrose is one we haven't watched in a little bit but they've been streaming some various things lately
We also used to stream ourselves but we haven't in a while; https://www.twitch.tv/packbat/ is our channel, though.

i like mayro on youtube, she mostly does mario games but she's fun
@lindenbow (non-binary OK? I think I know of a few others that would expand it to)
@lindenbow I like Kaiju's Digital Diversity LPs https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWZJQnognN5pEE0QHG304MA They're a NB person who focuses on small indie games by LGBT devs
@lindenbow i stream a bit infrequently, due to life/work or technical problems, though i'm working on getting a consistent schedule. my stuff is mostly obscure retro games. i also post the full stream archives on youtube.
@lindenbow korviday and nyx fears do gaming streams sometimes, i like their stuff a lot
