What can you do as an LGBT person in Ukraine? Is there anywhere you can go to Nike Sportswear Long Sleeve Top

What's that like to be in a smaller group like that where you're surrounded by people who want to attack you just because of who you are?

Is the Ukrainian community here supportive?

I can describe our lives with a very well known phrase 'don't ask, don't tell.'

We find it very supportive. With the contacts we have here, we see that we can work with people. They can help us. To see us represent Ukraine at WorldPride, I think this will make Ukrainians in Canada see that their country is represented with diverse people and their country can be different.

During their visit one of the Kyiv Pride organizers, Dr. Here is part of what she had to say (conversation has been condensed):

To be honest it's scary. When you arrive at the pride march and you see the great crowd, aggressive crowd and you hear them shout, you feel a bit nervous.

That was from the one side, scary, but from the other, exciting. People who were gathered there, they were those kinds of people who get more excited when you try and put them down. We are such a kind of people. The more they will oppress us, the higher we will rise up.

In a post on its website, Amnesty International said the event was cancelled after local police told organizers that they wouldn't be able to secure the safety of participants.

You took part in the human rights conference that was part of WorldPride. How was that?

Police were there and they didn't recommend that we hold the demonstration.

a great world for you, a small world. If you want to be open, if you want to make a partnership, if you want to have kids in your same sex partnership you will definitely fail because you have no rights. You will have a very poor life in comparison with straight (people).

It was not like usual pride (celebrations) around the world. We were surrounded by police buses and we were inside the perimeter marching because outside this small box, there were again thousands of people who wanted to beat us and kill us.

Just a week after taking part in WorldPride festivities in Toronto, a group of Ukrainian gay rights activists has been barred from holding a 'march of equality' in Kyiv.

We have gay clubs. We have two of them in the capital and in three regions, three more. For a country of 46 million and Nike Sports T Shirts Full Sleeves

We founded Kyiv Pride as a group of independent activists because we wanted to answer our parliament that was about to adopt a law about so called gay propaganda. With this law they wanted to ban any mention of homosexuality, LGBT and such things in all media. This is absurd. Even if you come out, you will be punished because you're (spreading) propaganda about gay life with your coming out. You could be arrested. But we met with huge huge opposition, thousands of protesters who were there not to protests against us, but to beat us. They were armed and ready to fight.

The same day a few of our activist were beaten up and bloodied . That made the homophobic part of Ukraine society very visible. We finally saw that homophobia is not only comments on the Internet. Homophobia is a really great threat of physical violence. That made us really angry and we got many good support from all over the world.

It's pretty safe if you come in a taxi and go home in a taxi. Of course you can be risky and take a walk from the club to a metro station, but it's not recommended.

You were involved in organizing Kyiv pride in 2012?

In 2013 we made a real pride. We were on the street. We were a crowd of 100 people and we were protected by police.

It was amazing. We understand now that maybe we in the Ukraine don't have as hard a homophobia as they have in Uganda for example. But the problems they have and the problems we have we can share the ways we use to overcome these problems. We can share the experience and support each other.

What is life like for LGBT people in the Ukraine?

We are really glad that today Canada is on a list of our supporters. The Ukrainian community in Canada is very big. That's why we find it very important to find these connections and be in touch with this community.
