LGBTQ student loan debt There’s a student loan debt crisis in our country. In fact, the $1.4 TRILLION in outstanding student loans has officials worried about significant economic consequences. Sadly, the LGBTQ student loan debt crisis is more severe. Miranda Marquit and her colleagues at Student Loan Hero were curious about the LGBTQ student loan debt crisis, so they conducted an exhaustive study and shared it with us on Queer Money™. Miranda Marquit, Student Loan Hero and the LGBTQ student loan debt crisis Miranda is a long-time freelance journalist in the financial space and senior writer for Student Loan Hero. Her work can be found on several finance websites, including US News, Yahoo!Finance and Huffington Post. Miranda blogs at Planting Money Seeds, and is the author of Confessions of a Professional Blogger. Today, Miranda shares several must-know points from the Student Loan Hero LGBTQ study about the LGBTQ student loan debt crisis, including why the queer community has more student loan debt — and regret than the general population. She offers her take on the recent political setbacks for the LGBTQ population and how data collected in the recent study might be used to make structural changes to the FAFSA requirements.
