Shot of the Day: The New Yorker's 'June Brides' Cover

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value. To honor that time of year when brides abound The New Yorker’s "June Brides" cover features artist Gayle Kabaker’s illustration of not merely ‘June Bride,’ but two brides betrothed to each other.

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value. Well, we at SheWired have made an executive decision to just throw any of our pseudo-feminist caution to the wind and to just post our favorite shot of the day, whether it be sexy, salacious, or just because…

To honor that time of year when brides abound The New Yorker’s June 25, "June Brides" features artist Gayle Kabaker’s illustration of not merely ‘June Bride,’ but two brides betrothed to each other.

Art editor at the New Yorker discovered Kabaker’s image on the Blown Covers blog.

“It’s a big deal, getting on the cover. We’ve been getting the magazine forever—it comes in and goes straight on the kitchen table. We talk about the cover with my son, who’s seventeen, and my daughter, who’s twenty-three,” Kabaker told the New Yorker.  “What do you think it means?’ It’s a conversation. And we all read it, dog-ear it, and leave it on the table for the next person to pick up.”
