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; the editor-in-chief of Archer, the world’s most inclusive sexuality and gender magazine; and, previously, the deputy editor of literary magazine Voiceworks.
In addition to my editing roles, I write nonfiction and poetry, and appear at festivals and arts events to speak about 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 was a participant in the inaugural (2017) intake of Midsumma Futures, a nine-month mentorship and development program for queer artists/performers. In 2015, the Melbourne Writers Festival named me one of the city’s 30 Under 30.
