A new magazine is being launched in Australia for LGBT identifying women in same-sex relationships – whether or not equal marriage becomes a reality.

The controversial postal vote on same-sex marriage, which is nonbinding, closes on November 7.

The final result will be revealed on November 15.

While opinion polls are heavily suggesting a “Yes” vote, Australian society appears to be becoming increasingly divided as the campaigning period continues.

Regardless of whether Yes or No wins, and if any legislation is passed, a wedding magazine for women in love with women will launch on October 24.

“While we didn’t anticipate the launch of the magazine would coincide with the current political debate in Australia, it has,” read a post on the magazine’s Instagram page.

“We can’t really think of a better time to remind the world all love is equal, and beautiful and deserves to be celebrated.”

Dancing With Her started life as a blog and online resource, and after initial fundraising attempts will soon exist as a fully-fledged digital and print publication.

Dancing With Her is Australia’s (and possibly the world’s) only publication dedicated to celebrating women in love, with women,” say its creators.

“In 2016, founders, Tara Baker and Arlia Hassell, became an engaged couple.
