Join GLOE Youth & Family for the second event in our LGBT Life Planning Series, focusing on Financial Planning! The Series gathers experts to help navigate the unique issues and laws that LGBT people encounter at various stages of life, with information specific to the DC-MD-VA area.

In this interactive session, our financial and estate planning experts will take you on a whirlwind tour of the unique planning needs of the LGBT community and give you a head start in thinking about how you can, with just a bit of forethought, have your ducks in a row for yourself and/or your partner. 

We will first discuss budgeting, investing, and saving for retirement; then move on to estate planning, including wills/trusts, partnership agreements and charitable giving; and finally, look to some burning tax questions you may have.  Panelists will also give an update on how recognition of same-sex marriage could be a game changer and how to find informed advisors to provide individual guidance. 

Bring your questions—following the panel, you'll get to speak with our experts individually!  



Sunday, July 29 - Family Building
In our Family Building sessions, we'll discuss the variety of options available to LGBT families interested in have (or having more) children. Experts will help us explore possibilities with fostering; surrogacy and insemination; adoption; fertility issues, as well as adoption and legal topics.
