When our world comes crashing down we all struggle to adapt to the new normal. Some of us escape in make-belief fantasies to overcome the monotony of dreadful routines. Others band together with survivalist friends, hoping – against better judgement – they can make sense of the unprecedented. We seek closeness and connection in the face of loss or even in the aftermath of death, which can considerably complicate one’s love life. Reluctant to accept the facts of our circumstances, we question who we are yet may be liberated to embrace the truth about ourselves. The future has never looked more uncertain, but SLASH promises to help you celebrate your best (after)life.
