Blue Mountains Love Magazine

It is fortuitous that today I draw the attention of the House to Blue Mountains Love.

Earlier this year independent Blue Mountains publisher Just Pressed celebrated relationship diversity with the launch of Blue Mountains Love, the region's only wedding magazine, which went on sale on 14 February—on Valentine's Day.

The publication is a 124-page print magazine. The fabulous team comprises public relations specialist Michelle Grima, artist and graphic designer Kara Cooper, and journalists and social media experts Jacqueline Forster and Lisa Doust.

Blue Mountains Love, which is published biannually, is a true celebration of love, diversity and all the clever creative people that make up our community.

The inaugural cover featured local lesbian couple Kylie Watson and Tiphanee Athans, who are actively involved in the local lesbian, gay bixexual, transgender, intersex and questioning community. They have put their marriage plans on hold until legislation is passed giving them the same rights as heterosexual couples.

Today we are a step closer to that marriage.

Today Australia said "YES!"

Today love won.
