Comedienne ROSIE O'DONNELL is set to launch a new magazine aimed at gay and lesbian parents in 2005.

R FAMILY MAGAZINE is O'Donnell's second attempt at launching a homosexual-interest publication, after her ROSIE magazine closed in 2003 after clashes between her and publishers GRUNER AND JAHR.

O'Donnell's spokeswoman CINDI BERGER says, "Rosie does hope to launch a magazine in the new year."

The new magazine will give the former actress a platform to address gay family issues.

The A League of Their Own actress recently 'wed' her long term partner KELLI CARPENTER in San Francisco.
