This multimedia feature documents the thoughts and feelings of Safer Spaces in the Sydney DIY/Punk/Hardcore scene by the people that are involved in them. These are the faces and voices of people that are typically not heard when it comes to the discussion of gender, marginalisation, acceptance, safety, and wellbeing in a subculture that is largely dominated by cis-gendered men. 

The importance of safe spaces are explored through each persons' experiences and the kinds of people they encounter every day.
