My Body! My Rights! An Intergenerational Community Arts Workshop with Women Living with HIV

This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

Join the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW) for a night of dialogue and activist banner making during the International AIDS Society Pathogens Conference in Vancouver, Canada.

ICW invites women living with HIV, as well as friends and local and international partners to join us to do art and support women living with HIV in our global community.

Snacks and light refreshments will be provided. We will be using the banners in a collective protest action on Tuesday.

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!
