HOLAA begun in 2012...

…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 HOLAA was born. What started as a random blog written by a few friends has grown into something bigger and more beautiful. More people, more conversations, more happenings.

We love it.

We publish written, audio and visual material by queer African women at home and in the diaspora and engage 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.
