    "that's so gay" A talk about Context

    Mpowerments weekly discussion night comes in heavy this week while we discuss what "context" is and how it's used to create "social norms".

    We've heard all those words before. Yes. The "bad" ones people use because they've become "re-appropriated".

    Why do we take such offense to these words? Should we re-appropriate them so that we can move on from the past? Or is it a good thing to learn from our mistakes and just forget about certain things?

    Let's talk about it....

    Unmask-ed

    It's time to Unmask again.

    Unmask is returning to the Mpowerment Program! 

    Educate, empower and unmask yourself (or don't) in this workshop specifically pertaining to MSM and the conflicts we face with everyday situations.

    Unmask is a chance to be ourselves and have an honest conversation about sex, relationships and our community. Join us and meet other guys, unpack what it means to be 'gay', and undo internalized homophobia. A one time discussion/workshop evening to build a stronger gay community.

    We all wear masks. Sometimes when we're facing a lot of homophobia, in a world where it's hard to be ourselves, it can be difficult to take them off.

    This is a great opportunity to meet new friends and talk about sex and relationships. Some beverages and snacks will be provided.

     

    Access to the 2nd floor is via stairs or elevator.
    Gender inclusive washrooms.
