This event will be taking place on the unceded and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations.


Come join Mpowerment YVR and Yúusnewas as we host a 2STNB resource share, discussion circle and packing party for our new safer hormone injection kits!

We will be sharing our recently created Trans, Non-Binary and Two-Spirit resource booklet with the community and answering any and all questions you may have about the resource, sexual health, relationships, queerness, gender, and more!

Other creative activities in the space include button-making if you are feeling nonverbal, so everyone can participate at any capacity!

Open to youth from 18 to 29.

We will have catered food from Mr Bannock so be sure to get here at 6.30PM when it's served HOT!!

Allies are welcome. :)


Yúusnewas is an Indigenous peer-led education program that provides workshops on HIV and sexual health in urban and rural communities across British Columbia. We approach the topics of sexual health and harm reduction by centering Indigenous perspectives and incorporating traditional teachings.

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 is free to attend and open to young people ages 19 to 29 years old.

Our space is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator or stairs. We have two all gender washrooms, one of which is a large accessible washroom.

We ask that you join us in making this event as scent-reduced as possible. This means maybe using fragrance-free products in lieu of any scented-products you may usually use.

We will have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options!

Bus tickets will also be provided.

If your have any dietary or access needs that we can prepare for ahead of time, please contact Atticus at or 604-688-1441 for more information.

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!
