Happy Pride! In the finale of Season 7, Gaby talks to professor, economist and author Lee Badgett about the financial and economic case for LGBTQ equality, the harmful myths about queer people and money (and the choice to focus all research on white, cis, gay men), and about Gaby's own reticence to engage with ending homophobia and transphobia through capitalism and corporate policy. It's a doozy of differing opinions! And in the end, it's probably all Will & Grace's fault. Then, a Dear Gaby with some Bad With Money book promotion and some interesting criticism AND love for Gaby's voice. Send an email to or leave a voicemail at 844-474-4040.

This episode contains discussions of homophobia, transphobia, bullying, and suicide. Please take care while listening.
