Get PrEP'd with YouthCO

This event takes place on the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, səl̓ilwətaɁɬ, and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nations.
Are you an Indigenous person and/or gay/bi/queer person looking to start PrEP?
Maybe interested in trying it out but have some questions first?
Yúusnewas & Mpowerment are collaborating to bring you an evening of board games, video games, dinner and confidential PrEP consultations with Dr. Mark Hull.
For our Indigenous participants we will also have cultural activities and medicine on hand.
This event is free for all self-identified Indigenous people regardless of gender or sexuality and all gay/bi/queer people ages 16-29.
Our space is located on the 2nd floor accessible by elevator or stairs, and has one all gender washroom that is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
Scent-reduced space, but we do smudge inside.
We are able to provide bus tickets for those who need it.
For on-site childcare please email
If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please email Ivan at or Kayla at for more info.

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!
