Come dance your pants off for a good cause!
Youth Unleashing Power is Canada’s first and only national symposium created by and for HIV / HCV positive youth. All funds raised from this event support travel costs for positive youth to attend the symposium. Over the past two years, #PODO has donated $4300 to YUP!!
For more information about the symposium and how you can help, check out youthunleashingpower.ca or chat with Piotr + Sarah at the event!
PANTS OFF DANCE OFF is a body+ queer friendly event, and is inspired by and in homage to the No Pants No Problem (http://jessicawhitbread.com/project/no-pants-no-problem/
) parties that are held in support of women with HIV and have grown to international fame.

Called upon to share BC’s most desirable stages with the likes of Latmun, Mark Knight, Gene Farris, Eats Everything, Shiba San and Sonny Fodera to name a few, the past few years have seen nothing but Sivz’s ambition establishing herself as a leading creator and curator of All Things House. One of Vancouver’s most active DJs with a reputation for her selections, relentless hustle and local contributions, she is regularly found drawing a dedicated fan base across town while holding her residencies at MIA and Gorg-O-Mish Afterhours. Equally popular beyond home base, Sivz has performed at prestigious BC music festivals including Bass Coast, Snowbombing Canada and Motion Notion. Expect a chunky, yet funky, sound characterized by fat kicks, simple basslines, endless bass-facing, and dirty vocals that bring a satisfying dose of attitude to any room.
