Aug. 29: First Toronto LGBTQ Death Café

Home Hospice Association presents event at Church and Wellesley

The first Toronto LGBTQ Death Café will take place on Aug. 29 at the Glad Day Bookshop at 499 Church St. from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

This event is presented by the Home Hospice Association (HHA).

Death cafes are part of a global movement “to increase awareness of death with a view to help people make the most of their (finite) lives.” This is an opportunity for the community to gather together in a safe, relaxed setting at to discuss death, dying and grief in an open forum while enjoying refreshments.

HHA aims to help communities develop resources to care for their dying in non-institutional environments. Much of the agency’s work also focuses on helping all members of any community die with peace and dignity.

This is a free event. Check online for more information.
