Come join us at one of our first events of the year! We'll be watching Rafiki (which means 'friend' in Swahili), the first Kenyan film to be screened at Cannes. Directed by Wanuri Kahiu, Rafiki follows the love that grows between two young women, Kena and Ziki, amidst family and political pressures around LGBT rights in Kenya.
 
We will be serving a yummy dinner too so come join! All for *FREE* so bring a friend or just come and make new ones!

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 ancestral, unceded, and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
