About DNA Magazine

Yes! We're saying yes to same-sex marriage in Australia ahead of the nationwide postal survey – and so are dozens of celebrity supporters in our #Yes campaign! For readers outside Australia, we're sure you'll enjoy Andrew Lambropoulos on the cover anyway – yes! Also in DNA this month, we focus on Fitness. Both Samuel Higgins and Laurence Hines have remarkable personal journeys in which they transformed their bodies from unhealthy teens to sort-after models. They're inspirations! And there's 10 pages of hot fitness fashion shot by Russell Fleming on the Gold Coast. It's a celebrity-packed issue with Kathy Griffin going off on Trump, and the adorable George Takei getting coy about what kind of underwear Sulu from Star Trek wore! Aussie singer Anthony Callea gets fired up about politics and his adventure with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and Bloc Party's Kele tells us about becoming a gay dad. Aussie hunk Rodger Corser talks about his TV career, who he'd date if he was gay, and what happened when a played a zombie with no underpants! It's Halloween soon so we found the sexiest Halloween party in LA, and one hell of a street party in New York! Speaking of travel, we continue our Honeymoon Hotspots series with stop-overs in Italy, India and a gay cruise in The Caribbean. There's Dear Diva's wise-ass advice, The Deplorables, Month In A Minute and a great lesbian romance movie, The Battle Of The Sexes. All that and more in this month’s DNA. Enjoy!
