YouTube this week was hit with a new lawsuit claiming the company systematically discriminates against videos created by lesbian, gay and transgender posters.  

Eight LGBTQ+ YouTube creators claim that content they’ve uploaded to Google’s video platform has been restricted and demonetized, denying them the opportunity to draw advertising because their video has been deemed by the site’s algorithms and moderators as “shocking,” “inappropriate,” “offensive” or “sexually explicit.”
