"Love Wins" with Obergefell v. Hodges SCOTUS Case, in front of White House.

After "Love Wins" (and #LoveWins) went viral on social media due to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on Same-Sex Marriage (Obergefell v. Hodges (5-4)), government interns in DC used balloons to spell out the phrase in front of the White House. The photo captures not only the nation's excitement, but the juxtaposition of the "Love Wins" text and the rainbow-illuminated White House represent the U.S. government's progress forward ("win") as well.
