This event is located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh.
 
Mpowerment continues it's monthly sexual-health workshop with a conversation about substance use we see in our communities, including booze, pot, coke, and prescription drugs. This workshop-discussion is for us to ask questions and get some answers so we can make informed decisions about our partying and our health. We will talk about the stigma associated with some of these decisions and how to have healthy sex lives when we add substances into the equation.
 
**ASL interpretation can be made available between 6:30 and 9pm, on request. If you would like ASL interpretation, please contact us through a message, email us at darrenh@youthco.org, or comment on the event wall by Tuesday, May 17.
 
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!

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!
