Sinister Wisdom 80: Willing Up and Keeling Over

Willing Up and Keeling over

Sinister Wisdom 80: Willing Up and Keeling Over: A Lesbian Handbook on Death Rights and Rituals is the book we wished we had when we lost our own Lesbian loved ones and when we first started thinking about our own funerals. Here is a practical handbook for Lesbians to help with those financial, emotional, and legal details when someone we love dies. It also helps lessen the impact of our own eventual death on the loved ones we leave behind. This beautiful book is given further depth by the inclusion of our heartfelt personal stories, art and poetry.
