Bowled Over! Mpowerment Fraser Goes Bowling

Get “bowled over” on a Saturday afternoon with Mpowerment! We will be meeting at Galaxy Bowl between 12 and 12:30 PM for bowling time with friends. Mpowerment will cover the lane cost and bowling shoe rental so bring yourself – this event is free :)
▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

Mpowerment is a queer-centered, trans-inclusive, and gender affirming space for young adults (19 - 29 years old) to meet, make friends, and talk about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure. We work to create safer spaces for all young people including those of us living with HIV. 

This event will be taking place on the shared traditional ancestral territory of the Sumas First Nation and the Matsqui First Nation; both of these First Nations are part of the Stó:lō Nation.

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

ACCESSIBILITY

Galaxy Bowl has two multi-stall gendered washrooms in the space. There are a few flights of stairs to the bowling alley part of the space, so it may not be wheelchair-accessible. Food is served in the space and others can book lanes simultaneously to Mpowerment, so we cannot guarantee that this will be a scent or allergen free event.

Public transit serves the general area of Galaxy Bowl but not directly to the building, so transportation needs may affect accessibility. Please contact the Mpowerment Fraser Facebook page or MP at mpgallard@youthco.org if you have transportation needs for this event.


This event is FREE and open to youth ages 19-29 years old. 

If you have any other access needs not mentioned above or want to get in touch, please contact MP at mpgallard@youthco.org

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!
