Tyler Oakley spoke about Youtube blocking LGBT-related content. The video sharing platform recently announced that some videos which are deemed to be not suitable for work (NSFW) are to be made less visible. The aim was good, but it touched many LGBT youtubers such as Oakley and trans model Gigi Gorgeous. “The number one thing I would hope for is YouTube realises their power of empowering and the people that are out there realise that it’s not always the people with millions of subscribers that are making an impact,” Oakley said adding that advertising should be available for youtubers with small audience as well to mark diversity. “Often it’s the people that have an engaged audience, who feels a connection, and that can be a subscriber base of 100 people, 1000 people. It’s not all about the big numbers, it’s about those connections,” he added.
