It can lead to a higher fuel bill with visiting more progressive cites to get away from your lower cost of living and lower level of acceptance town.

The "A" is actually for "asexual." I tend to think straight cis white dudes have enough special privileges that they can stand to be excluded from at least one club ;)

According to the internet, and everything I've ever seen IRL, the A can also stand for "allied", and was included as a way of recognizing the contributions of people who support LGBT rights without themselves identifying as a minority. 


Sol, , you're totally right on the "A" for allies.  Much appreciated too!

Have you all read about the newness in OKCupid?!?!?! Apparently they are rolling out way more options under orientation and sexuality! http://tinyurl.com/k6jcb5t I was one of the (apparently many) people that requested this. I'm so excited and thrilled that it's coming true!

Now, let's start a new petition that it also include a spectrum for frugal to spendy :)

Hello all, I'm gay and I am assuming my partner is too, otherwise things would be pretty awkward!  :-P All Kidding aside I think for the most part, financially speaking, there aren't too many differences between gay & straight couples. The big ones that stick out in my mind would be:

1-Gay male couples would most likely earn more than straight couples (and both earn more than lesbian couples).

2-Having a kid for gay male couples can have a lot of upfront costs in terms of adoption or surrogacy.

3-Lastly, I read an interesting article a while ago about gay folk who grew up in small times are more likely to be successful then their fellows.  This was theorized to be because they have a motivation to leave their (often bigoted) small towns and the drive to succeed once they reached a more metropolitan area!  Wish I could find the link...

None of the above would particularly lead to a more mustachian lifestyle.  I have been fortunate to surround myself with friends who share similar life choices. Even before I met my partner I only really dated very frugal gay folk.  Whether gay, straight or anything else it is good to share a similar lifestyle.  Thats my 2 cents anyway.
