“A symbol of peace, compassion, and positive change”
The Equality House is a project of the non-profit Planting Peace. The Equality House serves as a symbol of peace and positive change for the LGBTQ community. Our goal is to bring the fight for equality to all corners of the world. Our resource center, based in Topeka, Kansas across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, is painted the colors of the pride flag to stand as a visual reminder of our commitment, as global citizens, to this mission. Please explore this site to understand the key issues facing the LGBTQ community and beyond. Planting Peace invites you to get involved.

Such a wonderful energy to the place. I didn't get the impression that visitors could enter the house (so I didn't) but a sign welcomed folks to take pictures of the property. I loved it, and the community garden.
Most magical place in all the land.
Worth the stop. Please donate to this worthy cause.
A very nice little stop, nestled in an average neighborhood. Great signs, and a little donation box and library. Feel free to bring books! I bet they could use a donation or two. Just ignore the neighbors, and enjoys the lovely houses!
Such a positive place. They have a free community library in front, that I noticed some regulars at Westboro Baptist Church must have dropped devotional books into. Rainbow everything!
It is surreal to stand in the front yard of a building that stands for peace and equality for EVERYONE, with a building right across the street that stands for so much hate! A true fight against good and evil!
To add to my previous review, I should mention that the house is very welcoming of visitors. There is a sign inviting you to come on to the property to take photographs, a mailbox on the steps to leave letters/notes, and a little free library. While I was taking photos, a friendly intern came outside and offered to take my picture in front of the house.
On a more practical note, it is very easily accessible from I-70 and only took 30 minutes total to exit the highway, visit the house, and get back on the highway. Definitely worth the stop!
Such a peaceful and emotional place. Standing in front of this house and looking at the hateful messages plastered on the Westboro Baptist Church across the street is a bizarre experience, but also powerfully inspirational. Just being on the property gives such a feeling of support and hope, that I left feeling even more optimistic about the fight for equal rights than when I arrived.
