From early experiences sailing around the South Pacific as a child and subsequently coming out as queer, Alex Taylor learned one over-arching life lesson: Be the person you want to be, regardless of what everyone else is doing. This lesson has guided Alex through a varied set of careers, including software developer, Web master, bulletin board system operator, cantorial soloist, musician, and freelance writer.
Self-identifying as queer with FTM leanings, Alex has been partnered for ten years with a post-transition MTF woman. Their widely-divergent money management styles have led Alex to a unique understanding of the financial issues faced by GLBT families. In writing for Queercents, Alex seeks to share that understanding, and to help other GLBT families navigate the minefield of money management.
When not traveling in an RV, Alex lives on California’s Central Coast with wife, daughter and four parrots. Privately, Alex wonders if the parrots might do a better job at money management than the wife. Alex can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
