The Equality HousePlanting Peace‘s cute rainbow-colored abode just across the street from the horrid Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan. — hosted the Gay Olympics today, and it looks like it was a hell of a good time.

According to, the games were created to raise money for Spectrum Human Rights Alliance, an organization fighting for the rights of LGBT people in Russia. The event included a series of fun competitions, like a three-legged race, the short hurdle jump, an egg toss and even a limbo competition.

I’ve attached some photos from Equality House’s Instagram feed below. To find out how to help its crowd-sourcing campaign to fund Spectrum Human Rights Alliance, go here.
