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.

“I traveled to Antarctica to play a role in spreading visibility for the need for basic human rights for the LGBT community,”Aaron Jackson, president of Planting Peace, says. “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.”

Sounds good to us!

Now, where do we book our hotel room?
