I Am That Unicorn - Memoir of an Indonesian Queer ~ Arozak Salam

  • Eigenschappen

When Arozak Salam is presented with a rare opportunity to move from Indonesia to Australia, he makes a radical decision: leave everything behind and search for his true identity in a new country. From day one, Arozak is in survival mode as a loner immigrant struggling to find a home, job, and friends while wishing for love in a foreign land.

I Am That Unicorn depicts the mixture of Western and Eastern cultures from an immigrant's perspective. It's the tale of a proud gay man from a conservative Muslim family, a subsea engineer by day and a unicorn burlesque performer by night. It's a journey of self-discovery spanning from the Australia Indonesia Youth Exchange Program to ConFest - the largest hippy festival in Australia, the Sydney Mardi Gras Parade, the Mr Gay World pageant in Rome, a regional Burning Man in Western Australia, all the way to kinky clubs in Berlin and the inevitable Grindr debauchery. This book is a celebration of contrasts and life's full spectrum.
