Breaking Taboos: Stories That Shed Light on the Dark


Words by Holl & Lane Magazine 

From the beginning, we’ve strived to start honest conversations about our shared experiences as women. Because the more we open up and share, the more we let others know that they are not alone in what they’re feeling and experiencing. There’s no room for shame or judgement around these parts.

Even so, there are still topics that people consider off-limits, often holding back from sharing their hearts because of fear. Well, we’re here to tell you that we’re not afraid, and this is a safe space. Always.

September is “Taboo” month at Holl & Lane, and we’ll be featuring stories here on the blog that relate to this theme in some way. Join us in cheering on the lovely, fearless women who have opened up and bared their souls to us.

Help us break taboos and shed light on the dark. It’s the only way we can grow and give voice to the silenced. It’s the only way to foster true honesty and transparency. All stories are important, no matter what. That’s our rally cry, and we’ll keep shouting it out. Will you join us?

Whenever a taboo is broken, something good happens, something vitalizing.
— Henry Miller
