Remember the good ‘ol Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka? We’ve already written about Colby Keller’s kissing right next to it – but we neglected to mention that there is an LGBT center opposite of it, built by Planting Peace. The Equality House irritates Westboro church members to no end, but hey, it’s a free country, right?
This time Planting Peace (which is a non-profit LGBT advocacy organization) went a step further – it declared Antarctica to be “the world’s first LGBT-friendly continent”! The southern continent of our planet was traversed by members of the Planting Peace, who carried a rainbow flag with them.
Aaron Jackson, the president of Planting Peace, stated: “I traveled to Antarctica to play a role in spreading visibility for the need for basic human rights for the LGBT community. It was an honor to carry the Pride flag throughout Antarctica, and Planting Peace will not stop fighting for LGBT rights until all sexual and gender minorities experience full, fundamental rights in every corner of the world.”
