I am spending a week in Ukraine as part of an LGBT performing arts group. We will be under the protection of the US Embassy and will be visiting Lviv and Kiev. I know very little about the region, but I am aware that gay people are not necessarily treated with kindness there. What should I be aware of while there? Am I right to be apprehensive?
