Ko Latt is 27 and lives in Yangon. He is a committed artist who fights for LGBT people rights. The young man is gay, which is illegal in Myanmar. In this interview, he speaks about the issues he encounters, as an artist but also as a homosexual man in Burma, the way his relatives and friends see him and understand him. Ko Latt had the opportunity to spend one year in Zurich to study, which allowed him to open up and accept himself. He is now back in Myanmar where he is determined to stay and to settle as an artist.
