Gays, Games, and Testing

What’s a better way to make friends than to beat them in a round of Catan or Mario Kart 8? Come join us at Mpowerment for an evening of video games and board games. Games will go on till late!

We’ll also have a nurse at YouthCO that night who will be offering HIV/STI testing! Testing at Mpowerment is free and confidential, and will be happening from 6:30 to 8:30. It is also a chance to speak with the nurse and learn more about our sexual health. Testing is one of many ways we can take care of ourselves and our partners! In between rounds of Smash Bros, take some time to get tested, and then go play some more! 

*Sign-up for testing will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis*

At this time we are in the process of creating an organizational policy around ASL interpretation at our events. We apologize that we can not provide ASL interpretation for this event. 

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.
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!

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!
