TILIFI / House of GG

TILIFI / House of GG
Little Rock, AR

At the core of TILIFI / House of GG's work and mission is a framework and politic grounded in gender and racial justice, supporting Black trans women and folks in the South to access respite, wellness and healing justice. TILIFI's mission is to offer physical spaces and resources that positively impact the lives, history, and visibility of transgender, gender-questioning, and gender-nonconforming people of color-with a primary focus on Black trans women and girls. This service is provided to our community through welcoming them to our retreat center in Little Rock, Arkansas and providing them a space to truly retreat and have respite while also accessing support that promotes healing justice, resilience, and movement building and sustainability among our communities. TILIFI / House of GG is the brain-child of world-renowned trans rights revolutionary, Miss Major Griffin-Gracy. As a survivor of the historic Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969, Miss Major helped to pioneer the TLGBQ liberation movement. She continues this liberation work five decades later, now focusing her efforts on TILIFI / House of GG.

House of Tulip

House of Tulip
New Orleans, LA

We’re raising funds to buy and restore a multi-family property in an area of New Orleans that’s accessible to health care and employment opportunities. This will be our pilot permanent housing campus, and it will house up to 10 TGNC people at a time. In addition, we’re working to acquire a separate space that can serve as a community center where TGNC people can safely access social safety net navigation, community programming, a hot meal, a shower, or a safe place to just hang out or do schoolwork.
