Ras Mashramani

Rasmashramani

Ras Mashramani is Cali born, Philly fed, and Guyana blood. She is co-founder of the around-the-way DIY sci-fi collective, Metropolarity. Inspired by the collective action of the Occupy Philly movement, Ras Mashramani had a vision that a new form of sci-fi would emerge--one that is active, accessible, and grown from the block. Ras Mashramani believes that sci-fi is a technology that allows those without a way forward in the violent machinery that is our economic, criminal justice, and cultural systems, to build futures where they are alive and thriving. Ras Mashramani writes about altered states, state/community/sexual violence, alien abductions, life online, clandestine sanctuaries, queer utopias, and systemic paranoia. In a parallel existence, she is a mental health worker. Her name is a celebration. She is a job well done.
