What’s LGBTQ Financial Independence?

LGBTQ people can and should pursue financial independence (FI)

Financial independence and early retirement are popular today, but LGBTQ financial independence isn’t. Here’s what it means and how it can change. Make that easier by getting the 5 Building Blocks of a Happy Gay Life here.

Hear how we can get more queer people to seek financial independence:

Are queer people seeking financial independence (FI)

Are you tired of working for someone else? Frustrated with being at the mercy of someone else’s schedule, decisions, as well as, mood swings? Financial independence (or FI) gives you the freedom to pick up and walk away.

So, why isn’t the LGBTQ community pursuing financial independence with the same vigor as the general population? And what can we do to change that?

On this episode of Queer Money® Podcast, we explain exactly what it means to achieve financial independence and how it’s different from being independently wealthy.

We explore the reasons why more of us aren’t FI-curious, describing how cascading homophobia and legacy financial exclusion make financial independence a little more challenging (but not impossible!) for the LGBTQ community.

Listen in for insight on initiating conversations on building wealth and learn where to go for inspiration and resources as you work toward financial independence!
