Eight gay content creators in the US are suing YouTube for what they say amounts to discrimination.

Their suit says YouTube, which is owned by Google, regularly labels the content they produce as offensive or sexually explicit because of their sexuality, demonetizes the videos and restricts who can see it.

Two of those represented in the lawsuit are Bria Kam and Chrissy Chambers, a married duo who have been producing videos for their YouTube channel Bria and Chrissy for nearly 7 years.

They tell Lynn about why they've joined the suit.
