The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday that gay marriage is legal across the United States. Facebook is ready to celebrate.

The social network has unveiled a new feature, dubbed "Let's Celebrate Pride," which will automatically put a rainbow filter over your profile picture.

"From all of us at Facebook, happy Pride!" the website states.

The timing coincides with LGBT Pride Month, which just got a major new event to celebrate.

Many organizations have turned their profile images rainbow -- through means other than Facebook -- to mark the occasion. The Huffington Post is among them, as is the White House.
