    I don't know if gay banking advisers are really that important, but hey, it's another step forward.

    I wonder why this hasn't been done before. Afterall the 'pink pound' has been around for years.

    Yes, GQjock, money is indeed green, and I am green with envy.

    Question: Who of you would actually consider going to a "gay banking adviser?" Seriously?

    Ring, ring.

    That gives me a very funny mental image of having the rep say something like, "Girl...who cares about retirement? *snap* You need to take yourself to Prada for some fabulous new shoes".
