Funeral Home tries to Cater to Gay Funerals With Erotic Caskets
From Germany – A Cologne funeral home is hoping to draw in gay clientele by offering erotic caskets with nude renaissance imagery or rainbow-coloured urns, along with other tailored services for homosexuals and their mourners.
A casket featuring the figures of muscular young men in athletic poses has been in the display case at K
Their ad reads: ?Those who want a warmer, somewhat more fantastical departure, will find us to be a sensitive partner.?
They put gay customers in contact with special speakers and religious leaders for funeral services, organise natural burials in places where only other gays or lesbians have been laid to rest, arrange for graveside champagne toasts and colourful balloon decorations.
?There is also a casket in rainbow colours, but I think it looks awful,? Brandl says.
The mortician couple hopes tap into the community needs in the Rhineland city, one of Germany?s centres of gay culture where every tenth resident is estimated to be gay.
?Naturally there were people who threw their hands up in horror in front of the display window,? said K
