Michael Gold 0 Comment Maryland, The Baltimore Sun Baltimore, Camden Yards, Orioles, rainbow, weather
Whether up in Hampden or downtown at Camden Yards, Baltimore residents were greeted on Friday by a particularly distinct rainbow. Might it have been a sign from Mother Nature about the return of same-sex marriage to California, or just an omen signaling an exciting Orioles win?
Okay, okay, it was probably just a climate-caused optical phenomenon. Still pretty cool. We’ve collected photographs from Baltimore Sun staff and Darkroom readers. Share yours using @baltimoresun on Twitter or Instagram, and it could be featured here!

This week, the Pentagon held its first ever Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Month Event, nine months after the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy officially ended government-sanctioned discrimination against gays serving in the military.
LGBT pride is celebrated every June, commemorating the anniversary of the Stonewall riots on June 28, 1969 — the start of the modern gay rights movement and remembers the struggles and victories of the movement. Today, this “out and proud” mentality emphasizes a culture and community of diversity, tolerance, fashion and flare.
From drag queens to biker chicks, here’s a look at LGBT pride parades, street festivals, and political rallies around the world this month. Some of the following may not be suitable for young children, so parental discretion is advised.
