A group of advocates in New Orleans have raised more than $400,000 to create what will be the city’s first home for transgender and gender non-confirming people who are experiencing homelessness. The project called the House of Tulip (Trans United Leading Intersectional Progress) is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S., according to Mariah Moore, a co-director of the organization and a national organizer for the Transgender Law Center. The group is finalizing the purchase of a multi-unit home near the Treme neighborhood in downtown New Orleans that will provide living space for up to 12 people at a time. Moore explained that unlike other forms of shelter, the home would not impose specific requirements or restrictions that would limit who could access living space.
