Unmask: HIV/STI Testing

Two Guys Smiling

Many of us have questions about getting tested for HIV and other STIs... When should we get tested? How often should we get tested? What type of test is right for us?


This part in our new series of Unmask workshops will focus on sexual health and testing for HIV and other STIs. Nurses will be on hand to provide testing to anyone who would like it throughout the evening, and Starbucks vouchers will be given to everyone who attends!

Unmask is a chance to be ourselves and have an honest conversation about sex, relationships and our community. Join us and meet other guys, unpack what it means to be 'gay', and undo internalized homophobia.

Beverages and snacks will be provided.
Access to the 2nd floor is via stairs or elevator.
Gender inclusive washrooms.

Mpowerment events are planned by and for young gay, bi and queer men, both cis and trans. We invite all guys who like 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!
