SUCCESS! Thanks for the Itch team for featuring both the LGBTQIA tag and the Queer tag. LGBT is still of course available, but this means that folks who tag their game in a way that feels right for them is now an option.
Thanks to everyone for their support and discussions on this. <3
It's fantastic that Itch remains a beacon of hope for those in the LGBTQIA+ community making & playing games, however the LGBT tag doesn't cover everyone it needs to so that folks are included.
Having the LGBT tag updated to LGBTQIA+ would mean that folks who are part of the asexual/aromantic, intersex and queer parts of the gender/sexuality would be included. There are already many game jams that include these folks, but still no inclusive tag to bring them into the rest of the community.
Please consider updating the tag to be more representative of the community as a whole. Thanks
Additional: Removal of the LGBT tag as a whole is not the end goal here, it is to make the LGBTQIA (and Queer if possible) tags visible from basic searches so that they become a standard for tagging games made by the community.
(edit: the tagging system doesn't handle the +. It's still better to have LGBTQIA than the shorthand LGBT)
