HAUS RULES (à la AFROPUNK):
NO sexism
NO racism
NO ageism
NO homophobia
NO fatphobia
NO transphobia
NO hatefulness

Haus Orpheus is a voice of the voiceless; the unmarginalizing of the marginalized; the claiming of the soul of our world through openness, self expression and boundless creativity. The mission is clear: smash the white, heteronormative patriarchy and create, express, move, and build (comm)unity in the process. 

We are an event series, a movement, a community, and a VIBE rooted in Pan-Africanism, intersectional feminism, and decolonization. Join the movement. Elevate.

✭ Let us rise. Let us be known. ✭
