Mpowerment Tacoma is a premier social group for men who identify as gay and bisexual and are age 25 or older.
The goal of the group is to provide gay and bisexual men a place to meet others for social engagement outside of the bars and highly sexualized settings. Creating a community that is supportive of healthy behaviors such as condom negation, reduction or elimination of drug and alcohol use, and reducing the number of sexual partners is vital in the prevention of HIV. Mpowerment Tacoma facilitators are community health workers that have a deep understanding of the many issues that contribute to HIV transmission. They facilitate workshops and activities that increase participant’s skills and knowledge about safer sex practices, sexual partner communication, and other relevant skills, all while maintaining a fun and sex positive atmosphere.
