We are pleased to announce the first national retreat site, educational and historical center solely dedicated to transgender people in the USA, House of GG.
This project is the brain-child of world renowned civil rights advocate, revolutionary, social justice luminary, and trans activist Miss Major Griffin-Gracy.
Miss Major has spent over 50 years fighting for the rights of transgender and gender non-conforming people across the nation. As one of the remaining survivors of the historic Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969, she is also a pioneer of the early Gay Liberation Movement.
The Griffin-Gracy Educational Retreat & Historical Center (aka “House of GG”) is Miss Major’s legacy project – a compound in culturally-sensitive, safe, beautiful and serene settings in Little Rock, Arkansas providing an environment for developing and promoting strategies that effectively address the critical issues of discrimination, employment, housing, healthcare, civil/human rights and other issues that negatively impact the lives of transgender and other gender non-conforming people.
Special emphasis is given to those persons living throughout the Southern regions of the United States who have, too often, been forced into an invisible and voiceless existence.
Focusing on the significant presence and historical contributions of transgender people during the past century, we have partnered with national and international organizations and notable pioneers in the transgender diaspora who have contributed various photos, artwork, poetic pieces, documents, books, video/print media and other directly related historical artifacts to be compiled and available as resources, which aims to be the most prestigious collections of historical trans memorabilia and artifacts in the nation.
