Mpowerment Hangout: Queers & Boardgames

Image may contain: 4 people, shoes

Mpowerment is hanging out with our local Gaymers group February 16th! 

Come join us for food, games and good times.

They'll have board games, steam games, karaoke and handheld gaming happening in the space. The cafe also serves great food and the coordinators will be buying snacks for everyone : )

The Gaymer group is open to people of all genders and sexualities and are always up for teaching someone a new game, whether you're a longtime gamer or a new face!

Ivan will be heading to the cafe at 4:30PM before the event if you'd like to meetup before hand and chat. If you need help finding the space or Ivan, call or text him at 778-223-6712.

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 ancestral, unceded, and occupied territories of the Stó:lō, Kwantlen, Qayqayt, Katzie, Kwikwetlem, Semiahmoo, Tsleil-Waututh, and Tsawwassen nations.

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!
