Thursday, December 3, 2009
6:30PM - 8:30PM
Everyone's talking about The High Price of Being a Gay Couple, the shocking New York Times report that revealed just how much more same-sex partners pay for health, legal, and other costs.
Now, you can find out what the results mean from one of the journalists behind the story.
New York Times personal finance reporter Tara Siegel Bernard (above left), who co-wrote the piece with Ron Lieber, will speak at a very special Out Professionals event on December 3, cosponsored by the New York Times Company GLBT & Allies affinity group.
And we are fortunate to have Gary Gates (above right), Senior Research Fellow at The Williams Institute of the UCLA School of Law in town to moderate. The Williams Institute is a nationally recognized think tank focusing on advances in sexual orientation law and policy. Gary is the co-author of the Gay and Lesbian Atlas and is widely considered the leading demographer of lesbian/gay America.
Whether you're coupled or not, this story concerns your life. You won't want to miss this exclusive talk.
