A ‘family filter’ on YouTube is blocking LGBT content from users.
When viewers use the restricted filter, content disappears, according to some YouTubers.
Gay YouTube personality Calum McSwiggan turned on the family filter and discovered all of his videos have disappeared.

Similar thing happened to Rowan Ellis:
‘We don’t really know how long it’s been there.

‘But it’s something that people are just starting to realise the extent of, particularly with regard to LGBT content,’

McSwiggan said:
‘It’s completely backwards,’

In a statement to Attitude, a YouTube spokesperson said: ‘Restricted Mode is an optional feature used by a very small subset of users who want to have a more limited YouTube experience.

‘Some videos that cover subjects like health, politics and sexuality may not appear for users and institutions that choose to use this feature.’
