Queer Death Salon – Grieving Genocide
December 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Queer Death Salon is a community space for all 2SLGBTQIA+ people to come together to discuss death, dying and grief. It is a facilitated drop-in virtual discussion space, with the purpose of building connection, skill, and resources for 2SLGBTQIA+ people navigating end of life in our personal lives and in our communities.
In December, our discussion topic is once again Grieving Genocide.
There are currently multiple active and ongoing genocides happining around the world, and many of us have been awoken to that reality by the heart-wrenching first-hand accounts being shared by Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, under ongoing “Israeli” occupation.
This session is for 2SLGBTQIA+ people who are impacted by all forms of grief for these mass deaths.
Some questions to consider:
How easy or difficult is it for me to connect to my grief?
How are the people around me showing up to this moment?
How is my grief (in)validated by the media and my communities?
What avenues are available for me to express my grief?
How am I supported in my grief?
Do I have strategies for catalizing grief into action?
Participants are invited to bring related questions and stories of their own.
