Check Me Out!

Have you wondered what queer and trans-specific sex-ed would’ve looked like in highschool? Or what it would be feel like if a family or friend started a discussion with you about the many ways our bodies interact with each other?
 
Well, come get a gist of what that could be like at our Check Me Out! discussion night, where we will delve a little more into what sex, dating and relationships mean for us as queer and trans young people.
 
We will have a FREE dinner, an icebreaker, and questions to prompt us to get the discussion going about STIs, our bodies, our feelings, and the many identities we carry that informs how we approach our health and wellness!
 
Word on the street is that mini burgers and fried chicken will be served HOT at 6.30PM, so bring a friend and come early!!

Mpowerment is a space for queer and trans young people ages 19 to 29 years old to meet, have fun and support each other in making informed decisions about our sexual health!
 
We are committed to reducing stigma related to HIV and to building communities where we feel safe talking about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure.
 
This event will be taking place on the ancestral, unceded, and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations.

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!
