A new magazine catering to engaged homosexual men, Marry The Man, is coming to press.
A joint project of Damien Woolnough (pictured, in red) and Chris Harris from The Atlas Agency, and Born & Raised’s Chris Laws, Marry The Man offers various materials on travel destinations, wedding preparations, luxury items, and styling tips for men.
Woolnough said the idea for the magazine came during a walk with his partner during the run-up to last year’s plebiscite vote on same-sex marriage.
“It’s bringing that luxury edge to what is a new frontier. The gay market has a reputation for being tastemakers particularly in the field of fashion and grooming, so it’s exciting to see what new traditions and celebrations will be created in the weddings to come,” he said in a Mumbrella interview.
Launched during Melbourne Fashion Week as a digital edition, Marry The Man will hit the newsstands in October 2018 as a biannual magazine.
