At Hella Pinay, we seek to create a space for positive representation of the diversity and complexity of Filipina womxn, and facilitate dialogue between Pinays in the Philippines and throughout the diaspora. Frustrated by the lack of representation of Filipinas in mainstream media, Hella Pinay was created as a platform for us to tell our own stories; a space for conversations on identity, decolonization, spirituality, creativity, and celebration of dope Pinay sh*t. We believe that creating a strong support network and sharing knowledge and experiences are critical to our emotional and mental well-being, and are key factors in healing of both self and community.
