My self-summary
The name's Han Zaw. Originally from Burma, going to college in the American Midwest. Dating? Ain't nobody got time for that! But really, I'd love to be with someone.

I don't like to label myself as gay or homosexual, mainly because the term dictates that I'm a cis-gendered male - and I am not sure if I am. I'm gender fluid and prefer to label my sexuality as queer.
What I’m doing with my life
College -- studying theatre and music -- although I'm not necessarily enjoying the classes. In the theatre, I do performing, creative work and tech - all of it. As for music, play piano, sing tenor and compose (for piano, for voice and chamber pieces). Opera nut and wannabe-composer. (I have the same birthday as Richard Strauss.) Not a big fan of Broadway musicals. #SorryBoutIt But I still follow pop culture. Also into drag. (Who isn't into drag these days? Tell me about it!)
I’m really good at
- singing
- dressing up
- interpreting works of art, according to my professors
The first things people usually notice about me
- I prefer British English, because that's what I was taught growing up.
- I like to appear formal, but it's my own brand of formality - and I'm completely insane.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I didn't pick up reading as a child and I find it hard to read these days. But I try to: it never works with should-reads/must-reads, but rather with wanna-reads. I love short stories, plays, biographies and mythology. I'd read anything that's light but still has substance.

My music ranges from 12th Century Christian liturgy to Taylor Swift's latest breakup song. I don't enjoy movies as much as cartoons and/or animation.

Richard Wagner is my ultimate artistic idol. I'm very into Romanticism and Verismo. Others? There's Verdi, Berlioz, Bernstein, Gershwin and Sondheim. Although I am not terribly fond of Broadway, I consider Jonathan Larson's "Rent" theatrically/dramatically superior to Puccini's "La Boheme". (But of course, Puccini writes better music!)

As for singers, I would put Natalie Dessay before Maria Callas, coz as great as Callas is I haven't seen her live -- and sadly can't. (Too bad Dessay's retiring soon, too.) And Placido Domingo over Luciano Pavarotti, because the former has superior calibre in dramatic execution. In pop, I love belty diva voices -- you know, typical gay stuff.

Favourite foods: Thai hands down. I also enjoy various Chinese and Indian cuisines. I feel Italian is overrated and Mexican, a bean-overdose, but it might just be that I haven't found authentic stuff yet.

TV? I don't watch TV. Sorry not sorry! I don't even have Netflix but I feel I should invest in it from time to time. Two exceptions: I am devoted to Adventure Time and Bob's Burgers. And I sadly can't concentrate on video games, computer games or sports.
Six things I could never do without
1. Kindness of strangers - as Lana Del Rey sings it.
2. Good food
3. Music and theatre.
4. My cell phone - aka my life source.
5. Progressive school of thought
6. The internet and social networking: I need to stay connected.
This all sounds practical enough.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... I try not to think too much, coz my depression usually kicks in and, well, it's not pretty. Rather, I have to get myself to do stuff instead.

But for practical purposes, I think about if/how I'm going to survive in the US as a non-citizen foreigner or a first generation immigrant, and how I can't return to my native country and have a decent life because I'm gay.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies - but mostly YouTube and social network. I have huge playlist of opera videos that I found on YouTube, but I might end up watching 5secondfilms, Happy Tree Friends or weird viral/tutorial videos.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The saddest thing about being gay: my spouse and I will never have biological children together.
You should message me if
you want to. Just be civil and make me feel safe and comfortable, anything goes.

I'm mainly here for short-term dating and networking. I'm not in a position to plan out my life for the long run, and that rules out long-term committed relationships. Sex now and then is fun, and friendships with benefits are also welcome.
The two of us
