This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

Mpowerment and Chill means movie night! This a social event where young gay, bi, and queer guys come together to watch and discuss queer-themed films. For this edition of Mpowerment and Chill, we will be showing “The Mask You Live In”.

“‘The Mask You Live’ In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America’s narrow definition of masculinity.” Watch the trailer here: http://therepresentationproject.org/film/the-mask-you-live-in/

We will be having post-film discussions afterwards. Snacks will be provided. Come, watch, discuss, and chill.

The films will be presented with subtitles.

This event is planned in partnership with the Investigaytors! The Investigaytors are a group of young gay men learning to do research in Gay Men’s Health.

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!
