Drag Queen Show Being Held Outside Westboro Baptist Church Compound

We love everything about Equality House, the LGBT resource center erected outside the Westboro Baptist Church house of hatred: We love that it’s painted with rainbows. We love that they’ve held same-sex weddings there. We love the little girl created a lemonade stand for peace.

And now we love them even more because they’ll be hosting a drag queen show in plain view of Fred Phelps congregation of evil.

The Equality House Facebook page spells it out: westboro-hate-group

On October 26th Planting Peace will be hosting the first annual Equality House drag themed walk-a-thon! We are inviting you, your family, and your friends to all come out and parade around the Westboro Baptist Church with us whether in costume or not but either way raising money for the charity and looking fabulous during the whole event!!

If you or a team would like to sign up or receive more information please send us a Facebook message!

Dorothy, girl, if ever there was a time we wanted to go to Kansas, this is it! We’ve even got some great WBC-inspired drag names ready: Rhoda Ruin, Eva Destruction, Helena Handbasket…

Planting Peace, the group that operates Equality House, want RuPaul to host the drag queen walk-a-thon. We’ll see what we can do!
