Presently a freelancer, he writes for such media as eldiario.es and El Salto. He also covers LGTBI+ news for the Queer Agenda section of Radio Primavera Sound.

He is the voice behind the #MeQueer movement in Spain, which allows thousands of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals, and people with other gender identities and sexual orientations to share their experiences of discrimination. He has published texts in the anthologies Assault on Oz: An Anthology of Stories from the New Queer Narrative (Dos Bigotes, 2019) and Rabble and Riffraff. New Gay Voices (Egales, 2019). He is currently working on his first book, to be published by Planeta/Temas de Hoy.
