About this Death Cafe
We can rest assured that one day, that one sunrise will be our last. And that’s okay. And we should talk about it. Especially in a paradigm where fear and confusion pervades, it’s important to become grounded in the reality of Life and not fear this essential transfer of existence. This queer focused death cafe invites the LGBTQ plus community and allies alike to discuss any and all subjects orbiting Mortality: sharing our first experiences with Death, reflections on collective mourning, inner-personal or spiriltual reckonings about the event of dying. We’ll discuss as Queer people, what responsiblities there are to ourselves in considering Death before it’s fatally upon us. Dialog will be rich. All faith and viewpoints are welcome. We look forward to gathering with you. ☠︎︎♥︎☠︎︎
