Dunăreanu is the editor of Romania's first LGBT magazine, Angelicuss; he was also editor of the short-lived Switch magazine.

Dunareanu is the owner of the Veverițele Vesele - ex-Toxice musical group, which is the first professional drag queen band in Romania,[2] and was the first Romanian group of its kind to enter the Eurovision national preselection and Romanian TV shows Mondenii and Românii au talent. The slogan of Veverițele Vesele is that "Drag queen is an art and has nothing to do with sexual orientation".

Alongside these activities, Dunăreanu also participates in AIDS awareness and prevention campaigns.
