House of Pentacles

House of Pentacles (HOP) is focused on cultural organizing and narrative power led by and for Black Trans and Gender Non-Conforming people. HOP believes there is no racial justice nor trans justice without economic justice.

HOP launched with our founder’s Black Trans resources in 2018 with a simple mission: To train the next generation of Black Trans storytellers and filmmakers, leverage our brand to get Black Trans filmmakers paid projects in their communities, and pay Black Trans film fellows to work on House projects that further the stories of Black Trans people globally. We are Black Trans people telling Black Trans stories. We are recording our own histories, and we are making ourselves unforgettable. Our house is built on tenets of survival, creative resistance, and family. Much like the ballroom house scene we help each other survive, stunningly!
