  • Ukrainian Gay and Lesbian Association We consider that the LGBTs’ situation and issues in Ukraine are enough difficult and complicated. Only two Ukrainian cities – Kiev and Odessa – have the more or less developed and open public LGBT life with clubs, bars, saunas, and sea or river beaches. Naturally, all the big cities in Ukraine have cruising places (which often are AYOR). Many widely known Ukrainian artists, businessmen, politicians and church persons are LGBT, but practically all are afraid of coming out. Though the Ukrainian Parliament (Supreme Rada) still in 1992 decriminalized gay sex acting and the Ukrainian public opinion as a rule is enough tolerant in this issue, but the LGBTs so far have to face various serious problems both in public or professional activities and personal private life. http://www.ugla.odessa.ua/
