Queer Guys Blasting into Better Queer Futures


2017 has been a pretty underwhelming year…in many ways (especially politics), but also with how our community continues to treat Black, Indigenous, and other racialized communities when we have have raised our voices. Queer Futures is about getting together, celebrating all of the present activism rad folks in our community are doing, and celebrating the little ways that we, as individuals, have grown over the last year.

Basically, it will be an evening dreaming and scheming. 
Ready to blast away from the mess that was 2017?

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!

[Mpowerment Fraser is a new expansion to the MpowermentYVR program. This program aims to bring young gay, bi, queer and two spirit guys in the Tri-Cities, and the surrounding areas, together to connect and build healthy communities.]

YouthCO and Mpowerment Fraser would like to acknowledge that this event is being held on the unceded, traditional, and ancestral territories of the Stó:lō nations of the Kwikwetlem and the Katzie.

Will you come?

YouthCO's office is located on the unceded traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh people. Our programs take place on unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of many Indigenous nations across what is now called BC.

YouthCO believes that all youth have the right to accessible and affirming information about our health. We also know each of us has a unique relationship to our bodies, sex, sexuality, substance use, and harm reduction. For many of us, the words other people use for our bodies and their functions are not the words we use for ourselves. Throughout our website, YouthCO uses words for bodies and sex that we know will not reflect the full diversity of our communities. We have tried to, where possible, be as expansive with our language as we know how to while being as specific as possible. As youth leading the HIV movement, we too are learning about the best words for our experiences and do not do this perfectly. We invite any feedback about the language used on our website to help us move forward in the best ways for all youth in our communities!
