Atlanta City Hall lights up in rainbow colors after marriage ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage Friday, prompting parades and celebrations around the nation featuring the iconic gay pride rainbow flag. And this week, Atlanta will join them.

In honor of the court’s ruling in favor of marriage equality, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed announced Monday that City Hall will be illuminated in rainbow colors each evening until Thursday.

“The Supreme Court ruling marks a momentous victory for freedom, equality and love,” Reed said in a statement. “I am proud to light up City Hall as we celebrate this crucial step toward achieving our vision of equality.”

Atlanta City Hall joins other government buildings around the country showing support for marriage equality, including the White House.
