Twenty10 inc. GLCS began in 1982 when a group of passionate community volunteers created a housing refuge in response to the increased houselessness of young LGBTIQA+ young people in and around Sydney. Twenty10 takes our name from the Darlinghurst postcode where the original housing refuge was located, 2010.

In 2012, Twenty10 merged with the Gay and Lesbian Counselling Service NSW (GLCS NSW) in 2012 – a service which began in the 1970s to provide free, anonymous peer-to-peer support to young LGBTIQA+ folks across NSW during a difficult time of extreme persecution.

Today, we celebrate our heritage of supporting young LGBTIQA+ folks for over 40 years. We’re committed to continuing to provide a broad range of free, accessible mental health and psychosocial support programs, as well as creative and digital programs, events, safe spaces, and delivering specialist capacity building training all over NSW to continue building a world where LGBTIQA+ people of NSW are secure, connected and celebrated.

Twenty10 is also the official NSW partner of QLife, a nationwide telephone and web peer-based support service. QLife is organised by the National LGBTI Health Alliance and funded by the Australian Government.
