2015 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Eighteen 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. A co-founder of the Metropolarity sci-fi collective, they have enjoyed the continuing blossom of a Do-It-Yourself movement that utilizes a speculative lens for manifesting subversive and liberatory realities. Eighteen is frustrated/pissed with institutional distinction, white supremacy, and fixed treatments of language and identity. They use the spoken and written word as powerful, inexpensive tools to deconstruct oppressive narratives.
