A Liberal’s Hit List: Poverty in the LGBT Community

The article gives some limited commentary on a recent report by The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law titled

“Poverty in the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Community”.

It highlights a number of findings that question the myth of ‘the power of the pink dollar’, in that households in Our Community are at least as likely—and at times more likely—to be poor than married heterosexual couples. The rigour of this claim may need further consideration however the point here is to be mindful that our people come from a diverse socio-economic background.
