"The owner of Uganda's first openly gay bar says her establishment has been shut down, the latest setback for gays and lesbians in this conservative East African nation. Jacqueline Kasha said Thursday that her Sappho Islands bar was padlocked by the landlord on Sunday. ... The bar's closure comes months after parliament adjourned without acting on a bill that would mandate the death sentence for some gays and lesbians." (10/06/11)
