15 Notable Buildings and Monuments Lit Up by Rainbows

On Friday, June 26th, the United States Supreme Court ruled in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges that two people of the same sex have a right to marry in all 50 states, and that such marriages must be recognized when lawfully performed out of state. This landmark ruling was celebrated in a burst of rainbows across the internet, and in much of the offline world. A solid show of support came from the White House, where a crowd was gathered at dusk when the lights came on to illuminate the building in a rainbow of colors. It's number one on a list I posted at mental_floss, but it was far from the only such display.
