On the premiere of the second season of our VICELAND show GAYCATION, hosts Ellen and Ian spend some time in Ukraine meeting with the LGBTQ activists fighting for visibility and equality two years after the country's revolution. They talk to openly gay journalists and drag performers, as well as the founder of a violent far-right nationalist group, about the experience of living in a transitional country that's still trying to find its political footing.
