Look out Twitch and YouNow, there’s a new platform for YouTubers to live stream directly to their followers and it’s just signed up the “world’s most popular lesbian couple”. With over 183 million views on their main channel, BriaAndChrissy are set to start broadcasting on the live streaming platform – Streamup.
Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers were signed up by the social media network to connect their audience and enhance the YouTube presence currently available on the site. Will Keenan, the president of Streamup, spoke very highly of their new partnership in a recent press release, “BriaAndChrissy are THE online voice of this LGBT generation. I’m more than proud to consider them colleagues and what we’re planning with them at Streamup will further solidify their status as the most influential lesbian couple in the world”.
Streamup, which is also available via iOS devices, is moving it’s focus onto original programming as well as capitalising on what the future of TV looks to be shaping into – digital only. And with more than 23 million active users, Streamup is no small fry in the global live broadcasting industry.
Bria and Chrissy’s involvement with the platform comes after Will Keenan saw their activity on YouTube, “I’ve watched the extremely talented Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers from their humble beginnings just a few short days ago. I have seen them grow into highly influential and immensely powerful global female role models with their music, comedy and issue-oriented videos”.
One of their most popular videos was a social experiment uploaded only a month ago and has since gained the attention of the entire planet, ‘Lesbians Touch Penis For The First Time!’.
Earlier on in 2016, Will Keenan showed his absolute dedication and support for the digital community by launching a petition that would create a new category on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The plan is for it to be purely devoted to anything internet – including YouTubers, Viners and other Web-Celebs.
In the campaign, Will remarks that “adding digital stars would open up The Walk’s commemoration ceremonies and regular visitation to a massively growing and unprecedentedly mobile new audience”. Clearly this is the same motivation behind BriaAndChrissy’s recent Streamup deal and we’re honestly so happy to see people supporting digital creators by giving them gigs beyond YouTube.com.
