13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Future Generations in front of the White House on day of Obergefell v. Hodges SCOTUS ruling.

U.S. Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges (5-4) marks a turning point in our nation's history. In recognition of the court case and its impact on the LGBTQ community (and American society as a whole), the White House was lit in vibrant rainbow colors. The young boy in the photo, seemingly looking off at the White House and the changing times to come, helps symbolizes the revolutionary nature of this SCOTUS ruling.
