About this Death Cafe

The challenges around death and dying in the LGBTQIA community can be tremendously complex, from legal issues to barriers to navigating grief, often without the support of family. In this Death Café, we will explore the ways we can build supportive personal networks for the purpose of creating a safe space for the exploration of these and other issues unique to the LGBTQIA community.
