ON SHE GOES (ONSHEGOES.COM)
On She Goes is a digital travel platform that uses articles, videos, podcasts, forums, and the hashtag #Webelonghere to help women of color tell their travel stories, connect with one another, and feel confident and welcome wherever adventure takes them. From “How to Maintain Your Natural Hair While Traveling” and “Travel 101 for Fat Babes” to “5 TSA Survival Tips for Women of Color,” On She Goes offers travel hacks and tips that travelers of color of all shades, shapes, and sizes can use. And podcast host Aminatou Sow has blessed listeners with travel wisdom from Roxane Gay, Everyday People’s Saada Ahmed, model Nadia Aboulhosn, and singer-songwriter Thao Nguyen. (Fun fact: Bitch Media’s contributing editor Amy Lam is also an editor at On She Goes!) If the launch party was any indication of the coming success of the platform and its impact on travel for women of color, the future looks radiant, connected, and Brown and Black af.
