WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House is illuminated in rainbow colors in commemoration of the Supreme Court’s judgment to legalize same-sex marital relationship.
Gay and lesbian couples in Washington and across the country are celebrating Friday’s judgment, which will put an end to same-sex marital relationship bans in the 14 states that still keep them.
President Barack Obama stated previously Friday that the court ruling has actually “made our union a little more perfect.”
The colors illuminated the north side of the White House as Obama returned Friday evening from Charleston, South Carolina, where he provided the eulogy of the funeral of Clementa Pinckney, one of nine people murdered in the massacre at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church last week.
