Qeepr founder, Mandy Benoualid announced that “the #Talkdeath Roundtable discussion was founded on the principle of death positivity.” She explains that “death and dying is still a taboo subject in the Western world and the public is uncomfortable discussing something we all face. Whether it is about coming to terms with our own death, coping with the loss of a relative, or simply asking questions about funeral practices, we lack a platform and community to speak with.”

The #Talkdeath web series was inspired by the international movement of Death Cafes, and hopes to be a venue wherein death professionals and the general public can come together in conversation. According to the Qeepr team, #Talkdeath aims to change the common idea that people should only speak with death professionals when they are forced to do so through circumstance.

The #Talkdeath Roundtable discussion with Caitlin Doughty and Lauren LeRoy can be streamed live via Google+ and YouTube on March 12th at 4pm EST. The public can still ask their questions to the panel via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram by including the hashtag ‘#talkdeath’.
