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

Did you know: Syphilis is increasing especially among gay, bi, and other men who have sex with men. How does this affect the way we have stay healthy? Have sex? Take care of ourselves and each other?

This event is an interactive workshop for learning the important facts about Syphilis. Our guest presenters for this evening are:

James Connelly from the Momentum study, and
Nathan Lachowsky from the Momentum Study and the BC Centre of Excellence for HIV/AIDS. 

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.

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!
