Iconic Landmarks Light Up for a Rainbow Revolution To Celebrate Same-Sex Marriage Ruling and LGBT Pride Month
The White House got a colorful rainbow makeover after the Supreme Court’s historic ruling to allow same-sex marriage in all 50 states.
On Friday evening, red, yellow, violet, blue and green lights covered the White House entryway.
“Tonight, the White House was lit to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to progress and equality, here in America and around the world,” a White House official said. “The pride colors reflect the diversity of the LGBT community, and tonight, these colors celebrate a new chapter in the history of American civil rights.”
Here’s a look at other landmarks who are celebrating LGBT pride by lighting up their edifices with gay pride colors. Twitter’s jamming with the hashtag #rainbowrevolution.
