Femsplain inspires discussion and connection through storytelling by amplifying the voices of trans/cis women, and gender nonconforming individuals. We believe stories are most powerful when people feel safe enough to authentically share themselves – that’s why we are building an inclusive space for everyone. Diversity, in identity and opinion, is crucial to building a strong community. We practice our beliefs by respecting: the experiences of our storytellers, cultural diversity in beliefs and giving our community multiple ways to connect, discuss and support one another.
I launched Femsplain in 2014 with the help of Gabriela Barkho and a countless amount volunteer support. It started as a personal project that quickly grew to publish over two thousand personal essays and a content syndication deal with Teen Vogue. I managed a small staff team of volunteers and corresponded with over five hundred contributors around the world.
In 2015 we launched a Kickstarter campaign where we went on to raise $30,608 to pay all of our writers for an entire year.
As of June 2017 Femsplain has been archived and my focus has shifted to Aloe.
