There Are 7 Openly LGBT Billionaires (Combined Net Worth $16B)

Forbes magazine reveals that there are now seven openly LGBT billionaires in the world. Previously, I had blogged about the openly transgender billionaire, Jennifer Pritzker. At that time I had only identified three billionaires: David Geffen, Peter Thiel, Jon Stryker and Pritzker. But now they have been joined by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (the owners and creators of the Dolce Gabbana brand) as well as Michael Kors.

Not surprisingly, since men dominate the list of 1645 billionaires in the world, there are currently no openly lesbian billionaires.

For those of you counting at home, this means that just 0.7% of the world's known billionaires are openly LGBT.
