Mycelium’s Core Group is an online space for those of us interested in learning more about HIV & Hep C and how these viruses become complicated through systems of oppression.
Join queer & trans leaders from across BC as we gather online to learn, share, and deepen our skills in responding to HIV & Hep C stigma.
Together, over the course of 5 months, core group members will unpack our personal and community relationships to stigma through a series of anti-oppressive workshops on:
- queer & trans organizing
- harm reduction
- sex work
while centring decolonial approaches to organizing, pleasure, and community care.
Some of the topics and curiosities explored in Core Group include:
- What can queer & trans organizing look like? What are our personal and collective contributions to our movements?
- What can we learn from our histories and bring with us into our futures?
- How can harm reduction strategies, pleasure, and care inform our movements?
Core Group members meet online weekly, including attending monthly events held in our communities. All Core Group members receive an honorarium of $500 for participation.
Applications for our next Core Group cycle will be available NOW and will close July 11th.
Core Group is open to queer & trans youth ages 19-29 living in was in currently referred to as BC.
