The Space is a community drop-in center offering free rapid HIV testing, safer sex kits, PrEP and PEP navigation, and community support. Our space is open to all, with some core programs designed for LGBTQ+ teens and adults.
HIV Testing Hours:
Monday-Friday from 12-8 p.m.
MPower is a drop-in program for gay, bisexual, queer, and questioning men and trans individuals ages 18-29. We host community outings and activities, as well as meetings for core members. Follow us on Facebook to see what’s coming up!
We are a group of LGBTQ+ youth and allies who come together and make memories. We support one another and recognize one another for who we are, not who the world wants us to be. We are truly safe to be ourselves, and the staff support us in what we want to do.
Serious stuff we talk about:
We can talk about issues that affect us, like challenges around being LGBTQ+ in school, what we need from allies, or tips and tricks for challenging gender roles and expectations. We can learn about safer sex and HIV prevention in fun ways, and about healthy relationships. We also learn what other members of our LGBTQ+ community are up to.
Less serious stuff you can expect:
There's ALWAYS free food
Games and music
Fun and funny people
Movie and TV marathons are a must
Dance parties definitely happen
Super Smash Bros. is brilliant
The couches are super comfy
Did we mention free food?
