You’re Going To Die: Poetry, Prose, and Everything Goes!

Featuring music from our dear friend Destiny Grace Rhinehart!


“Music has always been a healer in my life. It’s held me when a body couldn’t; it’s given me the power to alchemize my grief into something beautiful & way less scary or intimidating. For me, creating songs is like choosing specific emotions or memories & building them altars of remembrance that I can return to whenever I need to. Writing & playing music acts as a tool to articulate the vast range of my emotions into something less abstract & more concrete; something not only I can find catharsis in, but when shared, can also build a bridge to others who have shared experiences.”– Destiny

YG2D is a 501(c)3 nonprofit bringing diverse communities creatively into the conversation of death & dying, inspiring life by unabashedly sourcing our shared mortality

Just 6 Days left to get your very own 2022 Anchor Donor Pin

Board Member & Volunteer Aimée Bolter Campbell looking as charming as heck in both her Anchor Donor 2021 Pin and her TLC Tee! She continues her recurring donation into 2022 and beyond and will be receiving this year’s pin, too. Start your Lost Church Anchor Pin Collection this year by setting up a monthly or quarterly recurring donation.

We are 28% to our goal of 50 new Anchor Donors

We wouldn’t still be here without our Anchors. You make a significant difference.

Our Anchors are people who want a concrete way of keeping the arts alive in the Bay Area and donate $5, $15, $20 or more each month or some choose to make a gift of $25, $100 or more each quarter.

It’s a set it and forget it way of automating support for The Lost Church in a seriously meaningful (and tax deductible) way.

Our 2022 Anchor Donor Drive Goal is 50 New Anchors by May 31st.

All who become Anchors by the end of the month will receive this year’s Anchor Donor metal and cloissonné pin. We design a new pin each year for new Anchors and for Anchors who continue their support this year. Years from now you’ll have a sweet collection of limited edition pins to jazz up any jacket or hat.

Become a Lost Church Anchor Donor at thelostchurch.org/donate

Big Thanks!

May is our Anchor Donor Drive

June 2022 at The Lost Church Santa Rosa
June is coming in HOT!

From Your Everlovin’ Editor

A hot hello to you!

As the year rolls along it means that warmer nights are here to stay awhile and we’re loving it.

It also means that our Santa Rosa theater has good airflow and a comfortable temperature inside.

And it means that our San Francisco theater is coming closer to its big reopening in the late summer.

Question for you:

If we hosted a free SF Open House one evening this summer — would you come by and see the new theater, hang with us, and enjoy some fab performances?

Raise your hand if you’re in and we’ll look at when we can do it.
