THE HUFFINGTON POST Planting Peace Travels With Grace Phelps To Document Jamaican LGBT Homeless Youth


In an unlikely turn of events for the Westboro Baptist Church, a former member — and daughter of the infamous Shirley Phelps — just made a massive statement of solidarity with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Grace Phelps traveled with Planting Peace President Aaron Jackson to Jamaica earlier this year to document the lives and experiences of LGBT youth living in the sewers of Kingston. Planting Peace is the non-profit organization behind the Equality House, the home painted the colors of the rainbow flag that sits across from the Westboro Baptist Church compound in Topeka, Kansas.
