There’s now a chrome extension called Twitch Chat pronouns which enables Twitch users to display, and see, each other’s pronouns in chat.


It’s super easy to add; you just need to install the extension in chrome, and visit the creator’s website, before logging in with your Twitch account, to set your pronouns.

The options at the time of writing are:

·         Any

·         He/Him

·         He/She

·         He/They

·         Other

·         She/Her

·         She/They

·         They/Them

Your pronouns will be displayed as a badge next to your name in chat, but only for people who’ve also downloaded the extension.

 

This is how it look in chat, to anyone with the extension active

The extension was made by Full-Time full-stack developer Alejo Pereyra, who also designed a Closed Captions for Streams extension. The Twitch Pronouns extension has already proven so popular that Alejo has had to deploy and update It’s great to see Twitch being made more accessible and welcoming to all, and Coaching for Geeks looks forward to seeing what else Alejo develops in the future.
