We will be holding our August meeting on 08.20.2017 at 5pm.
DPP member Shawn Porter will be presenting “The Plague Years: How the AIDS Crisis informed my views on Death” with a special movie screening immediately following. From Shawn:

Hey friends! On Sunday August 20th at 5pm, I’ll be presenting a casual chat for the DEATH PARTY PHILADELPHIA group on my experiences with sexuality and body modification during my formative years in the early 1990s- specifically how it pertained to the reality of the AIDS crisis in the communities I was part of and how that informed my views on death and mortality.

There will be a brief talk followed by a presentation of the 1998 film Hallelujah! Ron Athey: A Story of Deliverance.

It’s free to attend but you must be 21+

To RSVP: Death Party Philadelphia.

April Meeting: Remains to be Seen

In keeping with our mission to empower everyone with as much information as possible so that we can all have as much say in the kind of death we want, this month we’ll dive deep into the art and science of corpse preparation (embalming, etc.) and restoration.

Death Party Philadelphia founding member John Haldeman will be leading us in this multimedia presentation. As always, we look forward to an evening of death positive conversation and community and we hope to see you there!

Sunday April 30th 2017 at 6pm. Email deathpartyphl@gmail.com for more information.

We’ve scheduled our Death Party dates for the remainder of 2017- the regular schedule will have the meetings on the last Sunday of the month. Our March meeting will start at 6:30pm on Sunday March 26th:

This month, Kelly will present her efforts towards creating a one-stop death-positive resource shop. From info on advance care directives and planning a home funeral to online compendiums of Victorian mourning jewelry and links to formal death education courses and programs, let’s create our very own Death Party reference center! Kelly’s list will be comprehensive but by no means complete, so come prepared to contribute your own favorite deathy resources and web presences!
