Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender investors are largely optimistic about their financial futures, but many don't realize just how much extra money same-sex couples pay because the federal government doesn't recognize gay marriage. Two-thirds, or 66%, of LGBT investors are optimistic about their financial futures, compared to just half of the overall adult population, according to a Wells Fargo survey of more than 1,000 respondents. Meanwhile, 59% of LGBT investors say they are comfortable financially, compared to 51% of the overall adult population.
