Uganda First Gay Bar Forced To Close

Written by 


The first bar openly gay of Uganda was closed.

Sappho Islands bar has been shut down. The landlord said the bar was noisy and attracted "strange" people as reports Forbes.

Kasha, the leader of human rights group Freedom and Roam Uganda, said she plans to open another bar soon:

"The closure of Sappho doesn’t mean it’s the end of us having a social space. The way I managed to open Sappho in the first place is the way I will open it up elsewhere."
