About DNA Magazine

The wedding bells are ringing for you this month, as we look at wedding fascia, style, the best in wedding gifts and we chat to the people behind Australia’s one-stop wedding shop who help same-sex couples plan their wedding without fear, judgment or rejection. This month we also share in the magic of an Aussie couple who went to Vegas to get married where they met Cher and Diana Ross, we visit a beach wedding on a remote island of Thailand and meet a South African couple who have been together for 30 years and have no intention of tying the knot. We also chat with same-sex couple James and Stefan who just wanted to be dads, talk to Australian politican Alex Greenwich on the future of same-sex marriage and in a special feature DNA correspondent Vanessa McQuarrie talks to the man behind America’s successful push to legalise same-sex marriage about his thought on how Australia can achieve marriage equality for its LGBTI community. It’s not all marriage this month, Simon Dunn talks social media, DNA editor Andrew Creagh chats to the director and choreographer of Kinky Boots, in the new column Back Passage, we dream up some celebrity same-sex couples we WISH would hook-up and we check out the revisited definitive guide to ABBA - The Complete Recording Session. In photography, on the cover this month is the stunning Benji Condie, shot by Christian Scott and this months Pin-Up boy is the twinkalicious Oleksandr Kalinovskyi by photographer Star Vokman. All that and so much more in this months DNA #208.
