Positive Gathering

Positive Living BC runs the Positive Gathering each year. All HIV-positive British Columbians are invited to join this conference hosted by and for people living with HIV. 

This may be the last year for the Positive Gathering, and so YouthCO is determined to have a strong youth presence during the weekend! We are partnering with Positive Living and youth from across BC to create programming by-and-for youth!

YouthCO supports youth living with HIV in participating in this weekend-long event, by having on-site programming, and helping with costs (registration or travel!). To register through YouthCO (at no cost), fill out the form at http://www.positivegathering.com/register-now/ and send it to William (williamf [at] youthco.org).

If you'd like to facilitate or co-facilitate a workshop, you can submit a proposal here. If you'd like to work with someone else on a workshop proposal, get in touch with William and we'll happily collaborate!

Hope you can join us!

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!
