Mpowerment Hangsout for the Holidays



Let’s get festive and close the year with some fun! Whether you’ve made it out to all our events, or this is your first one of 2017, get your holiday season started right by coming down to our loft to hangout.

We’ll be busting out the board games, setting up some video games, and will also have some winter-y themed crafting for the art lovers among us. There’ll be a build-your-own-turkey-cranberry-sandwich-bar and freshly brewed hot chocolate to keep us toasty, and of course lots of veggie-friendly noms as well.

Come for the cozy vibes, stay for the conversation : )


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

This holiday event will be taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations. Many winter indigenous cultural practices across turtle island have been displaced by particular settler holiday traditions. We invite folks attending to join us in being mindful of this in how we choose to celebrate.



Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. Our washroom is gender inclusive, but unfortunately, it is not wheelchair accessible.

Two ASL-English interpreters have been confirmed for this event.

If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Ivan @ for more information.

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!
