Tuesday started out like any other Tuesday.. making the kids breakfast, then working and taking part in conference calls at my home workstation.

By the afternoon though, I was so excited as I FINALLY got my Twitch Affiliate invite! This means that I can now accept subscribers and bit donations. 

I was so happy, it was time for some celebratory selfies:

Thank you to those that take the time to watch my Twitch channel and have followed me there. If not for you viewers, I would not have qualified for Affiliate status. Now begins the task of trying to build the stream and really make something of it. I plan to do a lot of retro gaming from old computer systems, Ari Teaches.. X (meaning I show my viewers how to make a wordpress website or build a simple program, etc), IRL (In Real Life) Streams – come along with me to gaming conventions, or fandom conventions, trans advocacy streams, charity streams, and much more. 

If you follow me on tumblr or twitter and have not setup a Twitch account and followed me there yet, then please consider it. I truly think you will love Twitch, there are MANY great LGBTQ+ streamers on this platform and they have built some amazing communities. 

Here is the link to my Twitch channel. If you like the sound of what I am proposing to do with my Stream, then please consider not only following me, but also subscribing so that I can offset the time and costs spent to bring the stream to you. Also, if you are not aware.. ALL Amazon Prime subscribers get a free Twitch Prime account, and that Twitch Prime account gives you one free subscription per month! That means if you use Amazon Prime, then you can support my Stream each month without spending any additional money at all! Details for that program are here: https://twitch.amazon.com/prime

Once you set that up, just visit my page and click Subscribe – then elect to use your Twitch Prime subscription. You will need to apply that free subscription to my channel every month if you want to keep it active. Or, you can always subscribe using the traditional method and paying with paypal or credit card.

My Twitch Channel is:


I will be streaming Thursday night (8/10/2017) around 8pm to begin the celebration so please join me! 

Thank you all so much! Let’s build a great community in Twitch!
