On Saturday, March 21st volunteers from the Equality House invite the community to celebrate the two year anniversary of our city’s favorite rainbow house. To celebrate the impact the Equality House has had not only in our community but across the world, Planting Peace, the non-profit responsible for the Equality House, will host an open house along with a full day of activities.
Tours of the house and its significance to our community will be given. The house will be set up museum style and feature the ‘Legacy Project’, a series of stories about LGBT leaders who have made lasting impacts on the world.
The yard will be filled with interactive games, a raffle, and refreshments. Those celebrating will be given an opportunity to become part of the house’s tradition by selecting a color from the rainbow and placing a handprint onto the side of the house.
At 2:00, people from all walks of life are invited to participate in the “Plant one for Peace” photo shoot. Couples – gay and straight- are invited to participate in a group photo in front of Westboro Baptist Church to promote the idea that love is love, and all love is beautiful.
The anniversary event will be held at the Equality house located at 1200 SW Orleans St. in Topeka from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 21st.
