YouTube has caved in to calls for content restrictions and censorship on its platform, implementing an optional new feature called “restricted mode”.

It’s designed to censor indecent material — the kind that advertisers do not wish to be associated with. According to Google, the optional feature “uses community flagging, age-restrictions, and other signals to identify and filter out potentially inappropriate content.”

It’s a feature that’s been around for at least a year, but YouTube producers haven’t been feeling the hurt until now. Since YouTube ramped up the mode’s restrictions, several LGBT bloggers discovered that their content was blocked, and accused the platform of hiding their videos.

LGBT YouTuber Matthew Lush, who curates a gay variety channel called GayGod, was among the first to post a video complaining about having his channel hit by restricted mode.

He is one of several high-profile LGBT YouTubers affected by the restrictions, along with SeaineLove, NeonFiona and Rowan Ellis. Celebrities like Ariana Grande have also been impacted for their videos on gay acceptance.

LGBT vloggers aren’t the only ones affected by restricted mode. Gaming YouTubers, including PewDiePie, TotalBiscuit, Penguinz0 and Dunkey have all had their channels restricted.
