HOLAA is a Pan-Africanist queer womanist collective that deals with African female sexuality on a grand scale.
We do this through encouraging and publishing written, audio and visual material by queer women, engaging in activism, knowledge production and awareness building.
All done through this lovely interweb-based hub right here.
This is a space where women of all sexualities can come together and engage with each other and the world.
We also use Web 2.0 technology to start discussions, disseminate information and re-write the narratives about what post-colonial Black Womanhood and African Feminism looks like and what it means to those who live it.
We want to have those conversations about sex, sexuality and the African female experience. Also, on every day ending in ‘day’, we spread love and happiness.
