21+ LGBTQ Personal Finance Bloggers & Creators
Our List of LGBTQ Personal Finance Bloggers
As we’ve said before, we believe that LGBT personal finance is different. It’s different in many ways, but one of the best ways to see that difference is to listen to the individual stories of these personal finance experts or those on the journey to a better financial life.
Below is a list that we’ve gathered of LGBTQ personal finance bloggers who are working to help the queer community as well as our allies thrive financially. In each case, one or more of the owners or content creators have identified as LGBTQ. We hope that you find one or more that can help you grow and improve your finances.
If you’d like to be added to this list, please click on the contact link at the top of the page and send us your details and share how you identify as an LGBTQ personal finance blogger or content creator.
LGBTQ Bloggers & Creators
We are Ali and Alison Walker, and we used to call Seattle, Washington our home. We met in 2004, married in 2006, and retired in 2018. After reaching FIRE (Financial Independence / Retire Early) we wanted a complete and total change from our career-focused lives. We decided that meant leaving our Seattle life behind and making travel our new lifestyle. By November of 2018 we had sold our home and car, let go of 99% of our belongings, and left Seattle.
Today we are nomads in love with each other and our new lives. Our home is wherever we happen to be at the moment. Our only jobs are travel planning (Ali) and financial planning (Alison). Our plan is to slow travel around the world for as long as we enjoy it. We wake up everyday feeling excited that we have the freedom to follow our dreams, with “All Options Considered!”

Think of Bitches Get Riches as a beautiful test tube baby. The ovum was harvested from the life experience of two optimistic, financially solvent, twenty-something feminist killjoys. The sperm was the writhing mass of bullshit shot straight out of the blighted ball sack that was the Great Recession. Though not our first choice of donor, we are raising this baby with all the dedication and ferocity of Lisa Banes’s character in the classic Lifetime thriller Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?
I started Brian Thompson Financial with a simple goal: to educate and empower a new generation to align their life with their money. Now’s the time. I’m here to help.
Young adulthood is a complex time, especially in this era of marriage equality, the Affordable Care Act, convoluted tax laws and widespread student debt. You’ll have a tangle of conflicting obligations but also a lot of opportunity for richness, joy and choice in the future.
Now more than ever, Generation X and Y LGBTQ couples, families and professionals need someone they can trust on their side. That’s where I come in.

I’m passionate about helping people achieve financial well-being no matter their income. It’s not about how much you make, but about your relationship to money. For every broke person making six figures (and there’s a lot of them!), there’s a person who earns a modest salary but is making the right money choices.
Even if it meant working 5 jobs after I got out of college, I’ve saved nearly half of my income, have stayed debt-free, donated 5% of my spending, and have traveled to over 25 countries on a modest non-profit salary.
I want to help you feel confident about your financial future so you can do what matters to you –and I’ll do whatever it takes to teach you what you need to know about money – without the jargon or the product sales!

They recently worked together for a New York City-based fintech startup developing data and analytics for the alternative finance ecosystem and, at separate times, the same Big 4 accounting firm. With co-founders from two different generations (a millennial and a baby boomer), Otterwize draws upon different experiences and presents issues and insight from two different vantage points.

I defaulted to straight while growing up in a religious household. You know the drill. But I wasn’t suppressing it. I just didn’t know I had it in me. It hit me in 2015, during my last bit of college when I fell in love with my best friend. We are still very much together.
We’ve been living together for the past few years and navigating our 20’s. I got my first job out of college in 2016 and suddenly had this income stream that could support us both. And then there was some excess. Sure I could spend it, but was that the best option?
Like so many others, I never really “got” the power of money when I was growing up. I knew not to spend more than I earned, but that was pretty much it. I would immediately forget what a stock was after someone was just done explaining it to me for the 1000th time. It didn’t stick because I thought it was too complicated and boring.

This is a personal finance blog, intended to document my own personal journey on the path to financial freedom, analyze current theory, and develop new theories. It is not intended to act as personal advice to individual parties. Individuals should consult a certified financial planner, or other financial expert in order to tailor a financial plan to their own life situation. Although this blog also contains affiliate advertisements and links, all opinions are my own.
I’m a (once again single) bisexual woman who started as a full-time attending physician in August 2015. I live with my two cats in a lovely apartment somewhere in Canada. I write here about such topics as atheism, being queer, cooking, travel, money, and the (sometimes) amazing world of medicine. Make my day by leaving me a comment!
In mid-2015 our worlds were changed in a remarkable way. We welcomed to our lives our beautiful daughter and with that, we realized that we wanted to change our ways. To change our priorities. To change our lives to constantly strive for more flexibility so we could spend as much time making memories together rather than making new business cards with every promotion we sought.
This blog is about our journey, which is still ongoing – and probably won’t ever end. Our journey to complete flexibility. Meaning we want to be uninhibited, unrestricted, unbound and unashamed of it!
Young lesbian professional in a metropolitan area trying to achieve financial freedom. I hope to inspire other people based on my journey. My unrealistic dream is to be free in five years – 2021.
I am not qualified to provide financial or investing advice. I’m merely sharing what I’m doing in my life. These are often mistakes. Seek professional guidance as that is not what you are getting here. I began this blog with $150,000 negative net worth in April 2016; I am not the one to tell you what to do. I’m changing rapidly with knowledge.
