    As always, we will have food and snacks on hand. Let us know if you have any requests. 

    Mpowerment events are planned by and for young self-identified men who are gay, bi, or queer. We invite all guys who like guys and their friends to attend!

    Unmask: HIV treatment, PrEP & PEP

    This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

    In this part of our Unmask series of sexual wellbeing workshops we'll be learning about the ways HIV meds can be used for treatment and prevention. We are looking forward to welcoming Jonathan Postnikoff from Positive Living BC to help break down how exactly HIV meds work. 

    We'll be covering HIV treatment and how that can impact our the amount of HIV in our bodies and decrease the possibility of passing HIV to another person. We'll also be talking about how we can use HIV meds if we are HIV-negative, and how we can talk about the ways we use HIV meds or don't with our partners.

    *We'll be giving out sexy prizes, and everyone who attends will be entered in the draw!* 

    Unmask is a chance to be ourselves and have an honest conversation about sex, relationships and our communities. Join us and meet other guys, get trustworthy facts and information, and find new resources to get what we want when it comes to our sexual health.

    Mpowerment events are planned by and for young self-identified men who are gay, bi, or queer. We invite all guys who like guys and their friends to attend!
