Women living with HIV have been celebrating Love Positive Women with Valentines Day as a backdrop since 2013. This celebration has been organized across the globe, and YouthCO has participated over the past few years. Love Positive Women is a "platform for individuals and communities to engage in public and private acts of love and caring for women living with HIV. Going beyond romantic love to deep community love and social justice, LPW is call to action."
This year, YouthCO is using this global event to invite youth living with HIV of all genders to celebrate ourselves and each other during a season of love and romance, and to claim our space among those celebrating Valentines Day, all the while creating our own narratives of love and romance. Inspired by the LPW movement, Love Positive Youth focuses on relationships of all kinds that those of us living with HIV hold dear.
YouthCO is inviting youth across British Columbia from 14 to 29 years old to join us on February 22 in celebration of love, life and romance for those of us living with HIV. Join us for a delicious dinner at a local cafe in the Metro Vancouver area. We'll take care of food, transportation, and childcare needs so youth living with HIV can fully celebrate this fabulous evening. Location and time will be shared upon RSVP to help maintain confidentiality for participants.
Our dress code for the evening is fabulous.
RSVP by Friday Feb 15th (to guarantee a ride/travel assistance to and from the event, as well as a seat at the dinner - if you can only RSVP after that, we will try our best to include you.)
