Topeka is the capital of Kansas, and, truly, it is a “Capital City” with so much to offer. It’s a fairly progressive, eclectic, and friendly city with a welcoming midwestern feel, a great deal of opportunity, and much to see and do. Even better, it's a city with a thriving LGBTQ community and a history of welcoming and supporting its LGBTQ community. In fact, prior to same-sex marriage becoming legal, it was one of two cities to have a domestic partner registry, and it was also a national trailblazer in offering protection for both public and private employees based on both sexual orientation and gender identity. For so many reasons, Topeka would make a wonderful place to call home!
