Mpowerment Fraser Send Noods

 

Slide into our DMs and share space with us at this month's queer and trans cooking night ✨

We'll be learning how to make 3 new dishes:

"Kolo Mee (if you want to)" - Malaysian Kolo Mee

"Aah! Men!"- Japanese Ramen

"Safe-tea" - A safety flavoured Tea

And we'll also be chatting about some of the different ways we're able to safely navigate the complicated world of online dating as young queer and trans folx.

We'll bring the ingredients, you just bring yourself.

No prior cooking experience required :^)

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 unceded and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Katzie, Qayqat, Sto:lo, and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh nations.

ACCESSIBILITY

The Purpose Society building is largely wheelchair accessible and on the main floor, but is unfortunately located up a hill, on Begbie street, a couple blocks away from New Westminster skytrain station.

The washrooms will be all-genders for our event, but are unfortunately not wheel-chair accessible.

If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Eamonn at eamonnl@youthco.org for more information.

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!
