Income inflation: The myth of affluence among gay, lesbian and bisexual Americans

- Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people are spread throughout the range of household income distribution, just as heterosexual people are.

These myths and misconceptions about the wealth or disposable income of LGBT people have found their way into the courts in crucial civil rights challenges.
