Labels and the Community

When: February 02, 2016 at 6:30pm - 9pm

Where: Mpowerment Headquarters



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

Gay, Straight, Bi, Queer? Twink, Bear, Gymbunny, Otter? Some people dislike the concept of labels, while others embrace it as a marker of identity. When do these terms divide us, and when do they build community? Join us at Mpowerment for a casual and friendly discussion over snacks.

*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 [email protected], or comment on the event wall by Monday, January 19*

Mpowerment Headquarters is held at YouthCO, which is currently wheelchair accessible. The washroom at YouthCO is single stall and gender-neutral, and unfortunately not wheelchair accessible. (We are currently working on a solution to this and will update this event page accordingly.)
For further accessibility information on YouthCO's space, please message us, or check:
(The linked document has not been updated since our wheelchair accessible washroom has been out-of-order).



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?
