The White House Goes Purple on Facebook!

The White House this afternoon turned its Facebook profile picture purple to show its support for LGBT youth on Spirit Day. The White House also published a blog post on Spirit Day on its official blog. 

 

Several people thanked the White House for the show of support in the comments section of its profile pictures page.

The change became official just minutes after President Obama handed beloved LGBT advocate Janice Langbehn the nation's second-highest civilian honor, the Presidential Citizens Medal.
