  • What We Do


    An Mpowerment Project of AIDS Services of Austin that can make a difference in the lives of young gay, bisexual, and questioning men ages 18 – 29 by mobilizing these men to shape a healthy community for themselves, build positive social connections, and support their friends to have safer sex. The Mpowerment Project can reach large numbers of young gay/bisexual men in a cost-effective manner because it is a community level intervention. Within the Q space community partners help create a safe space for Austin’s LGBTQIA communities by organizing events and outreach to support the Q’s vision. Through this support, the message of safer sex practices and well-being can reach a larger audience while raising awareness for the Q and its mission.
