Mpowerment & Chill: The Journey (Sancharram)

 

This event will be taking place on the ancestral, unceded, and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations.

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

Come on up to our loft space downtown for a chill movie night with the Mpowerment crew!

We’ll be screening the movie “Journey (2004)/ Sancharram”, to coincide with Diwali/Deepavali!

“Based on a true-life story, this Malayalam film is set in a small community in Kerala and is the story of two young women, Kiran, a Hindu, and Delilah, a Catholic. They become friends from the day they meet as children and are quickly inseparable.”

We’ll have hot chocolate, snacks, and dinner, so join us at 6.30pm for some pre-screening hangout! 

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

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.

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

ACCESSIBILITY

Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. We have two, all gender washrooms, one of which is a large accessible washroom.

Vegetarian and meat options will be provided, along with tea, juice, soda and water.

We ask that you join us in making this event as scent-reduced as possible. This means maybe using fragrance-free products in lieu of any scented-products you may usually use.

This will be a nut-free and peanut-free event. Please refrain from bringing any food items containing nuts or peanuts into the space to ensure participants are not exposed to harmful allergens.

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

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!
