Mpowerment Art and Cake

When: September 06, 2018 at 7:00pm - 10pm

Where: The Reach Gallery and Afterthoughts Dessert Cafe

Contact: MP Gallard ·

Looking to have fun and hang out with other young queer people?


Join Mpowerment Fraser as we look at beautiful art at The Reach, and then eat cake with us at Afterthoughts!


We will meet at the Reach to check out the current exhibitions, and then walk to Afterthoughts for cake, tea, and good company. Feel free to join us for either or both parts of this event – it is FREE J



Mpowerment is a queer-centered, trans-inclusive, and gender affirming space for young adults (19 - 29 years old) to meet, make friends, and talk about the highs and lows of sex, drugs, relationships and all the things that bring us pleasure. We work to create safer spaces for all young people including those of us living with HIV.


This event will be taking place on the shared traditional ancestral territory of the Sumas First Nation and the Matsqui First Nation; both of these First Nations are part of the Stó:lō Nation.





The Reach is largely wheelchair accessible, though some display areas may be difficult to navigate. There are multiple, gendered washrooms in the space. A wheelchair is available to borrow at The Reach if needed. As this space is open to the public, we cannot guarantee that it will be scent-reduced; however, given that no food or drink are allowed in the gallery, allergens will likely be reduced.


Afterthoughts is a dessert café that is a short walk or easy drive from the Reach. Afterthoughts may not be accessible, given that the shape of the space and that it is frequently busy. This space is NOT allergen-reduced, as many types of baked goods are produced there.


This event is FREE and open to people 19 – 29 years old.
