Mpowerment Hangout: Sunset Beach


Not sure what to do with yourself in this summer heat? Beach, please!!

Join us at Sunset Beach for some fun board and card games, while we bask in the sunshine we don’t always get to enjoy!

We’ll be meeting at the Mpowerment Lounge at 6PM, and leaving for Sunset Beach at 6.30PM. If you’d like to meet us there, look out for our rainbow beach mats, or contact Joelle at 604-838-2556

Free snacks, sodas, and juices will be provided.

Kick back, put on some shades, and turn up the music with us!


Mpowerment is a space for queer and trans young people ages 19 to 29 years old to meet, have fun and support each other in making informed decisions about our sexual health!

We are committed to reducing stigma related to HIV and to building communities where we feel safe talking about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure.

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


This event is free to attend and open to young people ages 19 to 29 years old.

The Mpowerment Lounge 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.

Due to the venue being an open-air environment, this will not be a scent-reduced event.

We also cannot ensure that others at Sunset Beach won’t bring food containing nuts or peanuts. There is a possibility of exposure to airborne particles from nuts and fruits for those with airborne allergies

A variety of snack options will be available including vegetarian, and meat options.

If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Joelle at or 604-688-1441 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!
