According to House of Tulip's director of community support and outreach, Milan Nicole Sherry in the #Gambit on May 31, 2021: "I tell folks all the time, if only I had this resource when I was young. We didn't have this resource here in New Orleans," Sherry says. "It's rooted in love. You have two Black trans women who know what it's like to be counted out, to know what it's like to be discarded. Coming to House of Tulip is knowing that you'll always be welcome." Check out the full article ??

Safety goes well beyond a few simple policies in our handbook. It means an unwavering expectation of empathy, vulnerability, and communication amongst our team. It means clear boundaries that protect our team and guests of ALL backgrounds from transgressions that are too often overlooked in the hospitality industry. Not to mention, it means equitable, fair, and transparent wages and benefits. (And much, much more!) ?? We support local nonprofit organizations that work to improve equity in our community year-round - and we offer our event space to nonprofits for free! We contributed $10,000 in donation of funds, products, and services to local nonprofits in 2020 (our first year in business) and we're on track to double that in 2021. Fingers crossed! ?? Almost half of our current team identifies as LGBTQ+, and their trust in us is extremely important. Distilling is historically an exclusionary industry, where jobs and access can be hard to find. We continue to work everyday - especially thanks to some incredible local partners - on building and prioritizing diversity across our team.
