Hello ,i`m 18 student of 2d course living in Kharkiv,Ukraine. Well, till now nobody knows about my gay orientantion . This time of my live is very hard . Not because nobody knows the truth . It`s even normal for me I dont care about it - because post-soviet contries have bad stereotipes . I dont now where i can find "my gender" people,because 90% of us is hidden in the shadow . So it`s very lonely. And the most desperate thing for me ... I being in love with heterosexual 3d time. It`s so painful .. But how can i love some1 for me if i didnt meet him yet??????

Hi Semyon, I've read your post on this site and I'm sorry to hear about your situation in Ukraine.

We are a group of students from Stockholm, Sweden that just got back from a 2 week long study trip in Ukraine where we visited Kiev, Kharkov and Odessa. The purpose of the trip was to study the situation of the ukrainian population and social issues. We are now working on a project studying LGBTI groups in Ukraine and we would appreiciate any information or thoughts you have concearning the subject. We are very thankful if anyone else on this site has any useful information about the situation for LGBTI people in Ukraine. Don't hesitate to contact us, you will be completely anonymous in our project if you so wish.
