Announcing the first ever Queer Money Live Tour
We’re taking Queer Money on the road, and we want to meet you. Get all the details about the first ever Queer Money Live Tour.
The Queer Money Live Tour is about you
We appreciate you reading our emails a couple of times a week. We love your social media support and listening to the Queer Money® podcast. We have fun blogging and making videos for you.
There’s one key ingredient that’s underrepresented.
Yes, you occasionally email or direct message us. And we love that. Don’t get us wrong; keep that good stuff coming.
But, usually, we can go days without hearing from you, and we never see you.
So, we’re taking Queer Money® on the road, and here’s what that looks like:
- You and us meeting in LGBTQ centers and LGBTQ-friendly safe spaces
- You and us meeting each other, getting to know each other, hopefully having snacks and drinks
- You telling us how you’re doing, how we can help you more, what you need and don’t need
- You and us talking about LGBTQ money, and simple steps we can all take to strengthen our financial health
Sounds amazing, right? We think so, too.
Why the Queer Money Live Tour is important
- Half of LGBTQ respondents to a recent survey claimed to have neither a checking or savings account
- Only 27% of LGBTQ folks have an employer-sponsored retirement plan
- The average LGBTQ family with at least one kid has over $12,000 in credit card debt
- Same-sex couples are 73% more likely to be denied a mortgage
