Formerly known as "Gays, Games, and Testing", Mpowerment is continuing it's games and testing night under a new name. We hope you'll join us at "Queers, Questing, and Testing" --because we can never play enough video games, and frequent regular testing keeps us healthy.
What’s a better way to make friends than to beat them in a round of Smash Bros or Mario Kart 8? Come join us at Mpowerment for an evening of video games and board games.
We’ll also have nurses at YouthCO that night who will be offering HIV/STI testing! Testing at Mpowerment is free and confidential, and will be happening from 6:30 to 9. It is also a chance to speak with the nurse and learn more about our sexual health. Testing is one of many ways we can take care of ourselves and our partners! In between rounds of Smash Bros, take some time to get tested, and then go play some more!
Sign-up for testing will be done on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will have two nurses join us this evening and will aim to test as many guys as we can.
Feel free to bring your own Wii U controllers or 3DS. We have some, but with possibly two systems going on, we could always do with extras. Feel free to also bring any board games you’d like to share.
Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. Our washroom is gender inclusive, but unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible.
Mpowerment events are planned by and for young self-identified men who are gay, bi, or queer. We invite all guys who like guys and their friends to attend!
This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.
