Unmask: HIV treatment, PrEP & PEP

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

In this part of our Unmask series of sexual wellbeing workshops we'll be learning about the ways HIV meds can be used for treatment and prevention. We are looking forward to welcoming Jonathan Postnikoff from Positive Living BC to help break down how exactly HIV meds work. 

We'll be covering HIV treatment and how that can impact our the amount of HIV in our bodies and decrease the possibility of passing HIV to another person. We'll also be talking about how we can use HIV meds if we are HIV-negative, and how we can talk about the ways we use HIV meds or don't with our partners.

*We'll be giving out sexy prizes, and everyone who attends will be entered in the draw!* 

Unmask is a chance to be ourselves and have an honest conversation about sex, relationships and our communities. Join us and meet other guys, get trustworthy facts and information, and find new resources to get what we want when it comes to our sexual health.

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!

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!
