METROPOLARITY was born in the pixelated summer of 2012, desperate for a space where technology and community could intersect. We are a collective of speculative fiction writers/artists/activists based/raised in Philadelphia. We are poor & working class/low income, queer, trans, survivors, mothers, professionals, non-academics, glorious, amorphous border-walking space-dreaming city folk of the African/Caribbean/mestiza/European diasporas. We at METROPOLARITY believe that those without power must take advantage and control of the media outlets that we have access to. We choose science fiction as our prism to manifest world-paradigms necessary for our survival. We are destroyers and resurrectors.
