French Elle Supports Gay Marriage With Special Issue!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayFashion SmashionFrancophiliaElle

We just luuurrrrve it when the fashion world stands up for the important stuff!

It's not all about the clothes, y'all!

In light of the protests mounted following French president François Hollande’s gay-marriage act, which will allow gay couples to marry and adopt children, French Elle has released its own special issue supporting the controversial bill.

The cover features two female models dressed in white and embracing each other with a headline underneath that reads "Marriage for All."

The magazine's editorial director Valérie Toranian also wrote a lengthy editorial, saying in part:

“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.”

We just think it's awesome that the mag is taking such a bold stance, which can be rare in fashion circles.

And we hope it helps spread the support for gay marriage in France!
