Arozak Salam is a subsea engineer by day, and a burlesque performer by night. He was born and grew up in Indonesia, moved to Perth in 2012, and obtained Australian citizenship in 2017. Asian, gay, Muslim – he doesn’t fit into boxes and sees himself as a unicorn. His story is about moving back to Perth in July 2020 after living in London for two years, and what he learned about himself in hotel quarantine. It’s a story of romance, heartbreak, unfinished business and new hope.
