Subject: In-town print pool report #3

The north front of the White House has been lit rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage.

Your pooler walked out to a camera riser on Pennsylvania Ave. to get a good vantage point. As of 7:08 PM, the sunlight made it difficult make out the colors, but red, orange, yellow, green and violet were faintly visible.

A sizable group of WH aides were on the North Lawn to view the lights and a crowd of at least 100 people assembled on Pennsylvania Ave., although several told your pooler they were unaware of what was going on and just hoping to catch and glimpse of the president.

Your pooler can provide a photo by request.

From a White House official:

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