Streaming has become increasingly popular as people opt in for a relaxing and comfortable live entertainment option, with the added bonus of being able to talk to content creators and other viewers in real-time. Therefore, it’s no surprise that there are more Irish people taking to platforms such as Twitch and YouTube to launch their own careers as streamers. Although gaming is the more common theme of streams, there are also a handful of creators that choose to do a variety of content, from baking to general chit chat. Looking for a new channel to follow? Here is our list of LGBTQ+ Irish gaming streamers creating unique content!
