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. The theme for this 2nd edition of Mpowerment and Chill is “Places and Cultures”. We will be showing an episode of “Gaycation” and “Indonesia’s Transsexual Muslims” a documentary by Vice. 

“Gaycation” follows gay icon Ellen Page, as she and her friend set off on a journey to explore different LGBTQ cultures around the world. “Indonesia’s Transexual Muslims” is a short documentary where host Hannah Brooks reveals to us her journey to the Senin-Kamis School, anIslamic school for Indonesian transsexuals.

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

The films will be presented with subtitles.

Mpowerment Headquarters is held at YouthCO, which is currently wheelchair accessible. The washroom at YouthCO is single stall and gender-neutral, and unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. (We are currently working on a solution to this and will update this event page accordingly.)
For further accessibility information on YouthCO's space, please message us, or check: http://tinyurl.com/nklow49
(The linked document has not been updated since our wheelchair accessible washroom has been out-of-order).

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!
