Queer History Night

Queer_History_Night.png

Pride season is here and for many of us this is time to celebrate and also reflect on how far we’ve come in our own journeys and as a community.

From remembering a time when homosexuality was illegal to honoring the people who fought and are still fighting for our collective liberation, join us for an evening of connecting with our queer histories and queer futures.


Dinner will be ready at 6:30! 

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

Mpowerment is a trans-inclusive and gender-affirming program by and for young men and gender diverse folks who are gay, bi, Two-Spirit, or queer to hangout and learn more about ourselves and each other. We work to create safer spaces for all youth including those of us living with HIV.

This event will be taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations. 

▁▁▁▁▁▁▁

ACCESSIBILITY

Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. We have two all gender washrooms, one of which is a large accessible washroom. 

Vegetarian and meat options will be provided.

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

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!
