How do you feel when you find out someone is earning more money than you? How about when the person earning more money is a member of our queer community?

Recent data reflects an apparent rise in income for LGBTQ couples. So, what’s behind this trend toward income equality?

On this episode of Queer Money, we’re sharing the top four theories around why same-sex couples are starting to earn more, explaining how living in cities with larger populations translates to jobs with higher pay—but not necessarily a guarantee of financial security.

We weigh in on how being less likely to have children gives us the opportunity to earn more and describe how code switching at work may come with a financial benefit. Listen in for insight on how the gender pay gap gives gay men an advantage and learn how those of us who do earn more can use our privilege to promote income equality for everyone in the queer community.
