Bardic Barber : Lebbo Poet : Ladies Man 😉
@AbuSalim is a wild, gender-bending, comedy mash-up created by Randa Sayed.
Zac, a full-time Arab-Australian barber from Fairfield, moonlights as a revolutionary poet and pioneer, fighting for the rights of women of colour – as only he can. Join Zac at his barbershop as he rehearses his new activist endeavour, “The Good Allyship of Captain Salim”: a special night of poetry curated by Zac to give a voice to women of colour.
Please note: Whilst Zac is committed to helping women understand themselves, Zac is a married man and father to two daughters. Hot babes are asked to please understand that he will only give you a platonic follow. For now. Respectfully. You’re welcome.
