Text:A lesbian couple has married at Equality House, a rainbow-painted building across the road from the HQ of hateful church Westboro. Kimberly Kidwell, 31, and Katie Short, 27, from Arkansas, exchanged vows at a ceremony hosted by Planting Peace, a non-profit humanitarian organisation which owns Equality House in Topeka, Kansas. Kidwell and Short, who have been together five years, had responded to a Facebook post from Planting Peace asking for a same-sex couple to participate in a public wedding at Equality House ahead of the pending US Supreme Court decisions on Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. staff - 24th June 2013
