On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of being interviewed as the guest of The Denver Business Podcast. Ryan Estes is the host of the show and does a really great job. We talk Gay Ambition, business, entrepreneurship, and media.
Economist Stephen Dubner used his recent Freakanomics podcast to ask, "Are Gay Men Really Rich?" Back in October, Dubner's fellow economist, Steve Levitt, attempted to rationalize how one might go about choosing a hometown. He explained that "amenities," the kinds of things that people were willing to pay for, were key to an area's appeal.

Here in the US, Amtrak for the first time is courting LGBT travelers with a targeted $250,000 multimedia-advertising blitz this summer.
Recently (December 7, 2013), The New York Times ran a piece that asked the age-old question, “How Many American Men Are Gay?” The op-ed piece by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, which included an interesting map of the US, ventured to estimate this percentage based on a compilation and analysis of “surveys, social networks, pornographic searches and dating sites.” And the number comes in right around five percent gay nationwide.

Last week, the MacArthur Foundation revealed the recipients of its so-called “genius” awards, a $625,000 grant dispensed over five years to innovators, visionaries, and trailblazers. Of the 24 winners this year, at least three are openly gay, meaning gay people are significantly overrepresented among the genius pool.
