Queers + Peers Picnic

Mpowerment Fraser is hosting Queers + Peers Picnic! This is a free event where queer and trans folk can come together and build the LGBTQAI2S+ communities of the Fraser area. There will be vegetarian and gluten-free treats as well as games and music! We will also be discussing where we look for support and how we can support our peers.


We will be meeting up in front of the water fountain in Holland Park (Holland Park, 13428 Old Yale Rd, Surrey, BC V3T 3C7) between 11:45AM – 12:00pm and then picking the perfect spot together in the park to set up our picnic.

~This is an alcohol-free venue~

Bus tickets can be supplied so if you don't have a compass card no biggie! If you have any questions leading up to the picnic, please email Adrian at adrianb@youthco.org.


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 xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations.




Due to the venue being an open-air environment, this will not be a scent-reduced event, and we cannot ensure that others at Holland Park 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 is semi wheelchair accessible presently.

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!
