M Eighteen Téllez

Tellezghost-8a eighteen web ready Eighteen-avatar

M Eighteen Téllez is a hybrid mestiza cyborg and Philadelphia native who writes and performs speculative fiction about bodies/objectification, intimacy/class, neighborhood/land/community, and the violence in relying on binaries to order the world. They are a co-founder of METROPOLARITY, a DIY postcolonial sci-fi collective that wields the speculative lens in survival and resistance to the standing empire. Eighteen is frustrated/pissed with institutional legitimacy, anti-blackness, white forgetting, and fixed treatments of language and identity. They consider the common word a handy and inexpensive tool for deconstructing oppressive world-ordering narratives. Find them in various portals @cyborgmemoirs.
