HeartCore #14 DEATH

HeartCore #14 DEATH

Copenhagen Pride is usually draped in all the colours of the rainbow, but in the latest edition of HeartCore, we dive into the darkness with the theme DEATH. Among other things, we will get acquainted with the vampire as one of the queer monsters of the night, learn about the trope ‘Bury Your Gays’ and say goodbye to five concepts we won’t miss.

We recognise that this can be a difficult topic to tackle, especially given everything that’s going on in the world right now. Take care of yourself as you read and remember to seek help if you need it.
