…over good wine and good conversation between three friends.

Looking online, we realised there was very little for the African queer woman and her experience and so a Hub of Loving Action in Africa (HOLAA!) was born. What started as a small blog written by a few friends has grown into something bigger and more beautiful. More people, more conversations, more happenings. Now it’s a hub that houses knowledge that goes into all realms of sex and sexuality as it pertains to all aspects of African sex and sexuality. This is a space where women and gender non-conforming people of all sexualities can come together and engage with each other and the world.

HOLAA! does its thing through workshops, dialogues, archiving, digital conversations knowledge production, partnerships and awareness building. We want to have those chats about sex, sexuality and the African experience. Also, on every day ending in ‘day’, we spread love and happiness.

Welcome to our Hub of a home, explore and enjoy everything.


At HOLAA! sharing is caring and the space is built of stories that people want to share. This is why the most important part of this whole machine is you submitting. We love having an array of ideas and voices on the site.
