The White House was lit up in the colors of the rainbow on Friday night to celebrate the Supreme Court's historic ruling that made same-sex marriage legal across all 50 states.

"Tonight, the White House was lit to demonstrate our unwavering commitment to progress and equality, here in America and around the world," the White House said in a statement. "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."

Hundreds gathered outside the fences to view the colors and celebrate the ruling, according to HuffPost's Igor Bobic.

A bold decorating choice, but sometimes, you just gotta go with your heart. And it matched the mood around the nation, and the double rainbow that appeared over the White House not long after the Supreme Court's ruling.
