Discussion Night; Queer History


Pride season is coming, which means many of us may be going out to party and celebrate how far we’ve come in our own journeys. Our community has also come a long way since the western gay rights movement. From remembering a time when homosexuality was illegal to honoring the folks who spoke up and fought for LGBTQ rights, this discussion night aims to help us feel more connected to our history.

Come join us in a discussion on this very important topic, and talk and learn more about our colourful history. 

*ASL interpretation can be made available on request. If you would like ASL interpretation, please contact us through a message, email us at darrenh@youthco.org, or comment on the event wall by June 13th*

Mpowerment Headquarters is held at YouthCO, which is currently wheelchair accessible. The washroom at YouthCO is single stall and gender-neutral, and unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. (We are currently working on a solution to this and will update this event page accordingly.)
For further accessibility information on YouthCO's space, please message us, or check: http://tinyurl.com/nklow49
(The linked document has not been updated since our wheelchair accessible washroom has been out-of-order).

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!

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