Queers, Questing, and Testing

Are you feeling lucky?
 
Join Mpowerment PG for another installation of Queers, Questing, and Testing! Where games and STI testing come together to make a night of socializing and self care!
 
Testing is one of the many ways that we can take care of ourselves and our bodies, and at Mpowerment PG it is 100% free, confidential, and completely judgement free.
 
Throughout the night, we'll be providing both board and video games. There will be an on-site nurse available for optional on-site STI testing. The nurse can also offer prefilled and signed STI requisition forms to take home, allowing you the ability to discretely get checked at a lab and at a time that gives you your most accurate results.
 
The nurse will take participants on a first come first serve basis and will be available to answer any questions as well. Each testing session takes about 15 minutes.
 
** Please have your Care Card on hand **
 
Thank you to the AIDS Prevention Program for providing the free and confidential testing at this event.

Mpowerment PG is an in the north for the north community program. We are a space for queer and trans young people ages 19 - 29 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.

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!
