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.”

Mesothelioma is lung cancer that is caused by the naturally occurring asbestos mineral.

Many asbestos victims are filing claims through Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. which is a law firm and has helped many mesothelioma patients to get claims to cover their medical expenses. The law firm works on behalf of the mesothelioma victims and fights legally to provide the rights to the asbestos victims.
