Content note: This post contains content that may be distressing to Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and any First Nations people.

Twenty10 would like to acknowledge the traditional Custodians of the land upon which we work and live, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the Wangal people, and the Darug people. We pay our deepest respects to Elders past, present and those to come.

We would like to acknowledge that this day 250 years ago marks the commencement of the invasion and the ongoing occupation and colonisation by settlers on these countries we now call Australia. This invasion marked the beginning of displacement and ongoing systematic oppression of First Nations people across Australia.

This land was stolen and sovereignty was never ceded.

Today is one of quiet reflection for us at Twenty10 and we have compiled some great reading, viewing and art by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander folks including those from the LGBTIQA+ communities that we work with.

We stand in solidarity with First Nations people.
This land always was, and always will be, Aboriginal Land.
