Planting Peace, the non-profit LGBT advocacy organization perhaps best known for building the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church headquarters in Topeka, KS, made the official declaration after trekking across the southernmost continent carrying a rainbow flag.
