*Social Saturdays operates within our Safer Spaces Guidelines:
On your first visit, our facilitators will go through in more detail the Safer Spaces Guidelines and other useful information.
Twenty10 considers a safer space to be:
Built on mutual respect and personal responsibility
Welcoming and supportive of the wide range of diversity within the LGBTIQ communities
Free from homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism and other negative discrimination
Respectful of personal boundaries
Respectful of the physical space, facilities and materials provided.
This is a drug and alcohol free space.
Creating a safer space for everyone is not just about physical safety - it is also about making people feel comfortable, welcome, included, and emotionally safe in other ways. Everyone is responsible for helping to create a safer space for everyone.
