Thanks for dropping by!
My name is Adolfo Aranjuez and I’m from Melbourne, Australia. I’m perhaps best known as the editor of Metro, Australia’s oldest film and media periodical, and, until recently, the editor-in-chief of sexuality and gender magazine Archer.
In addition to my editing roles, I write nonfiction and poetry, and appear at festivals and arts events to speak about culture and politics; race, queer and mental-health issues; criticism and publishing; and various other topics. I’m also a dancer—I work primarily in the genres of hip-hop/urban and lyrical, and my practice centres on queering and ‘collisions’ of word and movement.
I’m a member of the strategic advisory group for UNESCO Melbourne City of Literature. Last year, I was a mentor for the Melbourne International Film Festival’s Critics Campus, and a participant in the inaugural (2017–2018) intake of Midsumma Futures, a development program for queer artists and performers. In 2015, the Melbourne Writers Festival named me one of the city’s 30 Under 30.
