The French version of women's glossy Elle has released a “Marriage For All!” issue in which it endorses the government's plans to legalize gay marriage.

“Marriage for all” has become the shorthand description for marriage equality in France.

The issue's cover includes two stunning blushing brides wearing white t-shirts.

Editorial director Valerie Toranian notes the strange bedfellows the issue has made.

“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,” Toranian wrote.

The issue arrives just days after opponents staged a giant rally in Paris near the Eiffel Tower. Its leader, the comedian Frigide Barjot, told reporters that she is opposed to the proposed legislation because it would say that “a child is born of a man and a man.”
