Join us to celebrate three years of Mpowerment! We'll be throwing a fabulous summer sunset patio party on the Coal Harbour waterfront.

There will be delicious drinks and dancing. Special guest performances by local drag superstars Isolde N. Barron and Peach Cobblah!

Doors are at 8:30 pm and the party runs until 12:30pm. Come as you are! Cover is by donation.

The venue is located four blocks north of Burrard Skytrain Station. From Burrard Skytrain Station, options include walking west on Melville St or taking the 19 bus on Pender Street to the stop at Broughton. And from Waterfront Station, walking west on Cordova or the Seawall will get you to the venue. Street and pay parking are available as well. 

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!
