Death of the Party NYC

Hosted by Melanie Wilson

Death of the Party NYC
This mixer is an antidote to awkwardness at public events for grieving folks and their allies.

Do you ever find yourself being the "Death of the Party" because your story includes the death of someone significant to you? Come find community with LGBTQ+ folks and allies who have also experienced this loss. Ages 22+.

Join us for facilitated discussions, casual conversations, and thoughtful letter writing to "Postal Service for the Dead". Of course, we are bringing back the typewriters and we encourage you to bring your whole self. Light refreshments will be served. Donations welcome at the event.

All types of connections will be encouraged at the mixer; not all conversations must be about grief. Whatever your level of comfort with speaking about your grief, please join us!

The intention of this mixer is to cultivate a community and connections among queer folks who understand each other in a way that those who haven't experienced the death of someone close cannot. It is not a traditional support group, death cafe, or grief counseling. At the event, we will share grief resources for those looking for additional support.
