Facebook Will Rainbowify Your Profile Photo To Celebrate Marriage Equality

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.
