Gilbert Baker, the creator of the
rainbow flag, is offering a Christmas tree ornament featuring three
landmark D.C. buildings awash in rainbow colors.
The do-it-yourself three-sided ornament
includes the White House, the Supreme Court and the U.S. Capitol.

landmarks around the globe lit in rainbow colors to celebrate the
Supreme Court's June 26 finding that gay and lesbian couples have a

Supreme Court were lit in rainbow hues.
Other landmarks which did celebrate the
Obergefell ruling included Niagara Falls, San Francisco City
Hall, Puerto Rico's Capitol, the Brandenburg Gate and Seattle's

anniversary of the rainbow flag is encouraged.
