With a few thousand other neighbors.

Pride Month is usually not super eventful outside of the first week of June here. But the SCOTUS decision last Friday made that a tad different. When I got off the bus and was walking to the office, people were sprinting out of the Metro toward the Supreme Court building, as the marriage decision had just been announced.

And later that evening, we took a trip down to the White House to see this. :)


Rainbow White House!

It was really cool to see the White House lit up like that. It's amazing to think that we went from the President who passed DOMA to the President who proposed a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage to the President whose "evolving" views helped lead to this.

Indeed! A big moment I'm glad I got to see in person.

Cool photo. :-) I would like to have seen in in person.

It was fun in WeHo that night. Thousands came into the area for a rally in the park, and a bunch of places decided to extend Happy Hour all night. I had dinner at Marix (where you and I went) and then we went to The Abbey and was running into people I hadn't seen in years. There was just a very festive and upbeat vibe everywhere.

It was fun to see in person! And the bars were crazy here, too. :)
