MpowerSD is as social and HIV prevention program for gay/bi men ages 25 and up. MpowerSD organizes a lot of social events, discussion groups, outreach and even volunteer opportunities. The program itself is composed of three main parts: Guy Talks, CORE Groups and Social Events.
What is Guy Talk?
Guy Talks are safe sex workshops where honest conversations can take place between gay/bi/curious men in a supportive and comfortable space. Guy talks are safe places to ask questions, share your opinion, and to learn something new. MpowerSD holds Guy Talks in many locations around the community such as: our office in North Park, Bamboo Lounge, Bourbon St, Lei Lounge, etc. For information about Guy Talks, send an email to
What is the CORE Group?

As a CORE group member, you will help plan social events and organize volunteer opportunities. CORE group meets once a month and makes essential decisions regarding the program.
