Monday Funday: Comic Book Launch!

Book Launch of Not Your Mother’s Meatloaf: A Sex Education Comic Book.  There will be a reading and showing of the comics, discussion and possibly some interactive make your own comics!

The book brings together a selection of comics by various artists addressing sex and sexuality as well as introductory writing and drawings by the editors, Saiya Miller and Liza Bley. Starting in 2008, the project began as an open call for young people to create comics that address a variety of topics involved with sex. The comics are graphically illustrated personal narratives in chapters such as “Firsts,” “Bodies,” “Health,” “Age” and “Endings.” The book is published by Soft Skull Press. Alison Bechdel says, “I wish I could go back in time and learn about sex from this book.”

Monday Funday is YouthCO's weekly drop-in and is a night for diverse youth to come together, lend a hand, learn a bunch and have fun :)

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!
