We need your help! Are you thinking about money as this new year begins? So are we. It seems like so much of the economy and the milestones of financial planning are geared towards cishet people -- the tax incentives to get married, the costs associated with starting a family. And healthcare. Like, all of healthcare. 

So here at Nancy, we’re taking a look at how queer people navigate the financial system. Has there been a time when you’ve noticed you’ve had a harder time sorting out money issues than your friends who aren’t queer? Or is there a way you’ve sort of hacked the system -- to get what you need but on your own terms? We want to hear about your experience. Record a voice memo telling us about your queer money moments and send it to nancy@wnyc.org
