The French edition of Elle magazine is proudly declaring its support for same-sex marriage with a stunning "Marriage for all!" issue.

New York Magazine's The Cut blog quotes Elle's editorial director Valérie Toranian as saying:

“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.”
