Tiptoe Through the Tulips!
Contact: MP Gallard ·
Join us as we “stop and smell the flowers” at the Tulips of the Valley Festival in Chilliwack! We will walk through the tulip fields - you will have a chance to pose for some Instagram photos (new phone background, anyone?) and maybe eat a stroopwaffel or two! We will also be discussing visibility – how does it feel when our identities are recognized and validated? Are there times that it feels better to blend into the crowd?
We will be meeting at the Tulips of the Valley Festival between 12:30 and 1 PM. Don’t worry about your entrance fee or snack costs – this event is free :)
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 traditional ancestral territory of the Stó:lō Nation.
Tulips of the Valley is not accessible by public transit. Transport support is available for this event. Please message the Mpowerment Fraser page or email MP at [email protected] if you need transport support to attend this event.
Tulips of the Valley is held in a large open field with bark paths at the front, which are accessible for wheelchairs on dry days (though not accessible on rainy days). Some parts of the field are not wheelchair accessible. There is an accessible covered viewing area. There are dedicated accessible parking spots. There is a maximum of 300 metres between the parking lot and the tulip fields.
There are individual portable toilets on the site, including some that are wheelchair accessible. There are also hand-wash stations.
This event is open to the public and outdoors, so we cannot guarantee scent or allergen reduction. Participants are advised to dress for the weather as they feel comfortable and are able – the event will still go on if there is rain J
This event is FREE and open to youth ages 19-29 years old.
