Adrian (he/they) is proudly queer and coordinates Minus18's partnerships and campaigns, such as IDAHOBIT, Wear it Purple and Trans Awareness Week. Adrian first worked in the LGBTQIA+ community through volunteering at both Melbourne Queer Film Festival (2015) and Midsumma (2016), before starting at Minus18 in 2017 as a volunteer and transitioning into Marketing and Partnership & Campaign Coordinator roles.

At Minus18, Adrian has helped coordinate projects such as Queer Ideas Festival, Queer Out Here and Escape Velocity, which focused on elevating LGBTQIA+ youth voices, connecting queer young people in regional & rural communities and empowering trans & gender diverse young people, respectively. Over the last few years, they have led Minus18's integration into national Pride campaigns with Converse, Instagram, Levi's, Bonds & Havaianas, which have reached millions of Australians across the country and raising funds to help us champion LGBTQIA+ young people.

In 2019, Adrian was nominated for a LGBTIQ GLOBE Award for excellence in Media, as well as a 2020 GLOBE nomination for Outstanding Advocacy - Campaign, for the Escape Velocity project. Later that year, Adrian was named as one of Out for Australia's 30 Under 30.

Minus18 is located on the land of the Yalakut Weelam Clan of the Boon Wurrung peoples, Australia’s First People and Traditional Custodians. We acknowledge their continued connection and contribution to land, water and community, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded; this always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
