About Open Doors

ODYS Mission

Open Doors Youth Service provides support to young people with diverse genders, bodies and sexualities. We support young people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Asexual, Pansexual, Sistergirl or Brotherboy (LGBTIQAP+ Sistergirl & Brotherboy) aged 12-24 across South East Queensland. At Open Doors, we value participation, respect, identity, diversity, and empowerment. 

ODYS Vision

Our vision is that all young people of Diverse genders, bodies, sexualities and relationships will be connected to culturally and developmentally appropriate services. We provide individual, group-based, and family support to enhance connections to family, culture, and community.

We are based in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane but provide outreach in varying capacities. If you are located out of South East Queensland we can still try provide support to link you in with safe and inclusive services in your area.
