The French edition of Elle magazine is taking sides in the nation’s ongoing same-sex marriage debate with a “Marriage for All!” issue, featuring two lovely, blushing model brides in matrimonial embrace.
According to editorial director Valérie Toranian, via The Cut:
“This debate is not primarily between old and modern, right and left, homophobes and progressives: there are gay, pro-marriage Catholics, left- and right-leaning psychologists fiercely attached to the symbolism of gender difference as a necessity for any potential child. There are feminists who advocate for IVF for lesbians, but who oppose surrogate mothers for gays because they denounce the commodification of women’s bodies.”
French Elle‘s “Marriage for All!” issue hits newsstands tomorrow, January 18, while President François Hollande has promised to pass the increasingly divisive legislation by June.
