Qeepr is excited to announce the second installment of our #Talkdeath web series on June 17th at 3pm EST, featuring current editor of About.com’s Dying, Funerals & Grief website, Chris Raymond, and author Gail Rubin (A Good Goodbye). Using the #Talkdeath hashtag, we are currently taking all your questions via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and asking them to our panel of death professionals. Whether you are curious about funeral practices, how to overcome a loss or want to know what happens to our bodies when we die- Start asking your burning questions about death & dying now!
One of our main goals at Qeepr is to encourage death positivity, and remove the stigma associated with discussing death, dying and everything in-between. As such, #Talkdeath seeks to create a space where such discussions are possible. Providing a safe, honest, and open environment for discourse, the #Talkdeath roundtable will act as a platform for questions to be answered that one might have been otherwise afraid or uncomfortable to ask. So start asking your questions now with #Talkdeath, or wait until June 17 to ask your questions in real time to our panel of death professionals!
Chris Raymond: Current editor of About.com’s Dying, Funerals & Grief website, and past editor of the world’s most widely read funeral professional magazine, The Director, Chris Raymond has been selected as a panelist for the June #Talkdeath edition. Raymond has spoken with audiences of funeral service professionals and consumers alike on numerous death and dying related topics.
“Qeepr’s #talkdeath roundtable offers a great opportunity to get honest, objective answers to anything you wanted to know about dying, funerals and grief but were afraid to ask!”
Gail Rubin: “The Doyenne of Death” and author of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t plan to Die, Gail Rubin will be the second #Talkdeath panel member. Rubin helps get end-of-life and funeral planning conversations started with a light touch on a serious subject. She is a certified funeral celebrant, a certified Thanalotogist, and all around end-of-life expert!
“I always say talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, and talking about funerals and end-of-life issues won’t make you dead. After more than five years of holding conversations, I am living proof of this proposition – neither pregnant or deceased. I’m looking forward to engaging with lots of folks during this roundtable!”
