Australia’s White Magazine shuts down over gay marriage

A well known Australian wedding magazine had made an announcement on Saturday that it will be shutting down after facing negative reaction for not featuring same-sex couples.

Founders of White Magazine Luke and Carla Burrell cited their Christian beliefs for their refusal on featuring gay and lesbian couples.

The Burrells had also made an announcement about White’s closure in a recent blog post, where they also told that they have received a “flood of judgement” online for their religious beliefs and that advertisers actually withdrew their sponsorships from the magazine.

“White Magazine has always known to be been a secular publication, but as its publishers, we are Christian,” the Burrells wrote. “We do not have any desire to create a social, legal or political war, which only further divides people and actually does more damage than good.”

In December 2017, parliament of Australia had already legalized gay marriage.

Gay photographer Lara Hotz, who has shot three covers of White Magazine, told radio program “Hack” that the Burrells did not wanted to feature lesbian or gay couples, tells BBC.

“It looks like that they are happy to take money, photographs and content from LGBTQI advertisers as well as contributors, but are yet to support and represent us in the similar way as heterosexual couples are known to represented in the magazine,” she told “Hack.”

If you watch a lot of television and commercials, you may be thinking that a personal injury attorney los angeles is only helpful when you get in a car or truck accident. However, that is completely false. A personal injury attorney can handle a myriad of causes, including animal attacks. 

Animal attacks can be dangerous. From giving permanent injuries to traumatizing a person for life, there is nothing that makes animal attacks less dangerous than a car accident. If you have suffered from a dog bite, you should not hesitate to contact an attorney.

Reasons to hire an attorney when attacked by an animal

 

  • The financial consequences of the attack can be devastating. 

 

The financial consequences of an animal bite or attack are no less than a car or truck wreck. Medical costs in Los Angeles are expensive, and you should not have to bear the costs when another party is at fault. The things you may need to pay for include: 

  • Emergency room visit
  • Antibiotics or other prescription drugs
  • Physical therapy
  • Medical devices such as crutches
  • Transportation by ambulance
  • X-rays or other diagnostic imaging tests
  • Blood tests
  • Outpatient physician services

All these can cost you a hundred thousand dollars or more. Having an attorney by your side can ensure that you will get some, most, or entire medical damages from the other party. 

 

  • Attorneys have legal knowledge about the laws concerning animal bites. 

 

An attorney with experience, knowledge, and years of training in handling animal bite cases can increase your chances of winning. They understand how complex filing a lawsuit and its procedure can be and can make the process easier for you. They can do most of the legal work while you focus on your recovery. They can also thoroughly explain everything you need to know about dog bite claims. 

 

  • Attorneys can negotiate on your behalf. 

 

Attorneys possess good negotiation skills. The defendant party will try their best to pay you as little as possible. They do not care about your injury as your attorney would. However, you must not accept a settlement less than what you deserve. Animal bites can lead to devastating physical and mental injuries and should be compensated properly. An attorney can make sure you get the right amount so you can manage your damages. 

 

  • They understand your legal rights. 

 

The best part about hiring an attorney is that they understand the law, which means they understand your rights as well. The average person does not fully know their rights as a victim in a dog bite claim, which may put them at a disadvantage. An attorney can protect you from making wrong choices and being fooled by another party.
