As we noted in our introduction, the gay scene in the Ukraine hardly exist anywhere outside Kiev and Kharkov. With a few exceptions, there are no gay bars, clubs, discos etc. Parks, squares, and public toilets remain the main (and only) places where local gays meet. In Fall 1999, while collecting the information for Spartacus, an international gay guide, we sent letters to all organizations, match-making services etc. that claimed to exist in the previous years. To date, we have not received a single answer. That's why we limited this list to established cruising places.
