    There Is Now A Lesbian-Only Cemetery In Germany

    Germany's first burial area for lesbians will open this weekend in Berlin. The group behind the project claims, “There is no reason to be buried anonymously anymore and like everyone else."

    A lesbian-only burial plot is being inaugurated in the Lutheran Georgen Parochial Cemetery of Germany this weekend.

    “We are the first real generation of emancipated, feminist, open lesbians, and we need somewhere to be buried,” explains Dr. Astrid Osterland of the Safia Association.

    The association has ownership of the plot for 30 years in exchange for its upkeep and landscaping. Around 20 women have registered for a space so far.

    In response to come criticism from local media, Osterland claims the project has "nothing against men."
