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 unceded and occupied territories of the sc̓əwaθenaɁɬ təməxʷ (Tsawwassen)
S’ólh Téméxw (Stó:lō), Kwantlen, Stz'uminus, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm , on whose traditional and unceded territories we live, we learn, we play and we do our work.



Due to the venue being an open space environment, this will be a scent-reduced event, though we cannot ensure that vendors or other attendees 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.

This venue and event are wheelchair accessible presently.

This event is FREE and open to queer and gender diverse youth ages 19-29 years old.

If your needs to access this event are not mentioned above, please contact Adrian at adrianb@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!
