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.)
