Death Cafés, gay rights on the isle of Lewis, flamboyant coffin culture in Ghana and China’s new two-child policy: birth, marriage and death are global issues that affect us all. So what are we still so afraid to talk about when it comes to birth, marriage and death?

Join Xinran, internationally best-selling author of The Good Women of China (2002), Buy Me the Sky (2015) and The Promise (2018) and the first woman to host a Chinese phone-in radio show; Emilie Pine, author of Notes to Self and The An Post Irish Book Awards winner of Newcomer of the Year 2018; and CEO and founder of Bloody Good Period, Gabby Edlin to tackle the tricky topics of the taboo and (self-)censorship when it comes to some of our most human experiences at the launch of Index on Censorship’s latest magazine.

Chaired by Index on Censorship magazine editor Rachael Jolley, expect punchy debate, frank conversation and breaking down these barriers head-on.
