Have your say at our youth consultations!
We have a few things we're really keen to get your ideas and thoughts about, so we would love it if you joined us at one of the upcoming Youth Consultations! There will be one during drop-in, one at ShoutOut Saturday group and one at Out West.
Some of the things we'll be asking about include our Safer Space Guidelines, the services we offer - what we're doing well, not so well and what you'd like to see us doing in the future. This is a great opportunity to voice your opinions, concerns and have an impact on the way we do things.
The consultations will be run by Rebecca Reynolds, Twenty10's Manager, so it's a good way to have a conversation that will make it into all of the planning work that Twenty10 does.
Hope to see you there!
Drop-in: Twenty10, 45 Chippen St, Chippendale
Out West: Mars Hill Cafe, 331 Church St, Parramatta

Young People from Twenty10 create a Gender Identity Resource Video
In July of 2012 a group of young people who stand under the umbrella term 'gender diverse' came together, and in a series of workshops with the crew from Jump Academy and Twenty10, they created a video about gender identity.
Join the film's news anchors Pete and Squirrel, and special reporter Victoria Pomegranate as they investigate gender identities for young people.
U R Not Alone - A Film made by Twenty10 Young People and ReachOut with sponsorship from the Community Relations Commission.
September 2010, a group of young people came together for a series of Video Workshops facilitated by ReachOut.com and Twenty10 with sponsorship from the Community Relations Commission.
Young people had ongoing discussion about their experiences growing up and 'coming out', how these experiences shaped thier identities, what would've been and was helpful for them to combat the impacts of homophobia. They learnt how to capture ideas with a camera and a microphone.
These were combined to create the U R Not Alone video!
Twenty10 Gender Identity Poster
Twenty10 has a poster promoting gender diversity. The text on the poster reads:
"Wherever you and your gender sit, there is a place for you.
Gender, sex and sexuality are not black and white.
If you are under 26 and identify as transgender, intersex of gender-queer
or are exploring what gender means for you, Twenty10 can help you
access the support and information you may need."
This poster is a great one to have up in your service or consultation room to ensure that people feel comfortable and welcome to talk about their gender identity or issues they may be having.
To order a copy of this free poster, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
