Mumbai girls launch new premium online content channel Girliyapa

MUMBAI: A ‘bindass’ group of girls from Mumbai has created a premium online content channel Girliyapa about women that intends to create progressive content, but not only for women.

The all women team at Girliyapa aims at sharing fun, quirky stories from a woman’s perspective that will make one think beyond the clichés. The Girliyapa team of women want to say things women always ‘think of’, but never say perhaps because of their fear of being judged by society and thier peers

Announcing the launch, Girliyapa channel head Tracy Dsouza said, “Yes! We feel you. We hear you women. That’s why my gang of girls and I created ‘Girliyapa’ exclusively for you. We are going to try to make liberal content – content that tells stories and experiences about women, by women in an entertaining treatment. Come join us and explore womanhood with Girliyapa and share with us what you think! We would love to hear from you.”      

Our country has progressed in so many was and in so many fields but yet women feel or are made to feel guilty for the most natural phenomenon of their life, menstruation. In an attempt to demystify the monthly ‘phenomenon’ the girls have decided to do something that has never been thought about in India by presenting the funny and quirky situations one experiences during their periods.

The first presentation by the team of girls was launched around International Women’s Day on addressing this issue through their popular #The Period Song.  The song was created to celebrate menstruation and womanhood in general. The Girliyapa team took a popular party track and turned it into a ‘period’ anthem.

The lyrics and the video revolve around a teenage girl who as and when gets her first period, is transported to a surreal space called ‘The Period Club’. There, she goes through different experiences, and is offered solutions by more experienced women on how to deal with menstruation and its companions like cramps, cravings, mood swings, pimples etc. The video has a lot of laugh out loud moments, relatable insights and pop cultural references for example ‘daadi left the club but mama abhi baki hai’, ‘red wedding in my pants’, etc.  

The video features celebrities and social influencers like Sandhya Mridul, Rukhsar Rehman, Pavleen Gujral, Rajshri Deshpande, Sumeet Vyas, Nidhi Singh, Naveen Kasturia, Maanvi Gagroo, Jitendra Kumar, Akanksha Thakur, Santushi Shetty, Sumukhi Suresh and other YouTubers like Rickshwali, etc.

In its second video presentation Why should Hot Girls have all the fun?,  the Girliyapa team has showcased the exact opposite by showing a not so hot women confronting a guy who is staring at their hot friend and explain logically why he should look at them instead.
