Monday Funday: Documentary - "How to Survive a Plague"

In the lead up to World AIDS Day on December 1st, come by YouthCO for some popcorn and a great documentary. If you haven't seen this documentary yet you've been missing out. Featured in last year's film fest, this inspiring documentary is a compilation of then-and-now footage of ACT UP when they were fighting the early AIDS crisis in New York. Want to know more about early activism? Are touched by communities working together, being brave, making positive change? Then this is a movie for you!

Enough to make any young person involved in the HIV movement shed a sentimental tear of gratitude for the brave people that paved the way for the work we do today at YouthCO!

and there's popcorn. POPCORN.

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!
