Would you date an Asian man?
While cruising their site hoping to highlight men who look like me bringing greatness to a child’s life, I found myself scrolling minute after minute with zero posts in the last 30 days being a black family. Men from Australia, the UK, and the US are highlighted on GayDadSwag.com. There’s even a touching story about a deaf, mute couple adopting from India.
But, GDS needs more stories from people of color. Feel free to click here and submit your story or two black, gay dads you know who have swag.
Here’s three fast facts from “Money, Myths, and Change: The Economic Lives Of Lesbians and Gay Men” via QUEERTY-
Based on Census data, the median gay male household income is $105,000, more than 20% higher than that of their straight counterparts, who top out at around $84,000.
Studies suggest that gay men have higher than average education levels.Education levels of course lead to more $$ in the long run, possibly adding 8% more income per year for each extra year of education attained.
A heterosexual couple is more than 4X as likely as a gay male couple to be raising a kid. Since the estimated expenditure for a child is roughly $175,000 from birth until age 18, we all know what that means: More Andrew Christian undies, Gucci wallets, Tom Ford suits, and Atlantis cruises for EVERYONE!
The full story on QUEERTY’s site also shows study results from “New Patterns Of Poverty in the LGBT Community” where straight men applied to 8 jobs on average and got an interview, whereas gay men applied to 11 jobs. The study also finds that gay men in “female-like” jobs are paid less on average.
