Speed Dating with Mpowerment



This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.

How many dates can you go on in one evening? Back by popular demand, Mpowerment is hosting another evening of speed dating for you to meet potential dates, partners, lovers, soul-mates, besties, or friends.

At Speed Dating with Mpowerment, you and other guys will get a chance to get to know each other and afterwards there will be time to socialize.

Doors will open at 6:30pm, and Speed dating rounds will start at 6:45pm. Arriving before 6:45 will ensure that we can include you in the pairing-rotation system.

*Admission is FREE*
Alcohol drink tickets are $4 (cash and credit card accepted)
This event is intended for youth under 30.

*As we have not received any requests for ASL interpretation, as of February 5th, we will not be offering ASL interpretation for this event. We look forward to providing ASL interpretation upon request for future events.

Mpowerment Headquarters is held at YouthCO, which is currently wheelchair accessible. The washroom at YouthCO is single stall and gender-neutral, and unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. (We are currently working on a solution to this and will update this event page accordingly.)

(The linked document has not been updated since our wheelchair accessible washroom has been out-of-order).

Mpowerment events are planned by and for young self-identified men who are gay, bi, or queer. We invite all gay, bi, and queer guys and their friends to attend!

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!
