Long-time New Yorker magazine illustrator Bob Staake’s latest cover was revealed Friday, and it features the front columns of the White House repainted in the rainbow colors of the Pride flag. Says Staake:

“I am honored to be doing this cover. It’s a celebratory moment for our country, and that’s what I tried to capture. (I don’t especially like those rainbow colors, but they are what they are—I had to use them.) I wanted to celebrate the bravery of the President’s statement—a statement long overdue—but all the more appreciated in this political year. We are on the right side of history.”
