Is it possible to port yourself entirely into virtual reality and escape the oppressive forces of the real world? A depressive Afrocaribbean queer tries to find out, straddling the limits of selfcare and wellness, presence and oblivion.

METROPOLARTIY co-founder Ras Mashramani reads their story 𝑮𝑹𝑳.𝑺𝑼𝑰𝑪𝑰𝑫𝑬.𝑯𝑶𝑳𝑰𝑫𝑨𝒀 from the sci-fi collective's debut book, 𝑺𝒕𝒚𝒍𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝑨𝒕𝒕𝒂𝒄𝒌 𝑹𝒆𝒑𝒐𝒓𝒕. Available at
