New analyses show that local same-sex couples often earn less than married men and women. According to data recently released by the University of California’s Williams Institute on Sexual Orientation, married couples trump same-sex couples in nine of 16 categorical salary comparisons. Gary Gates, a Williams Institute senior research fellow, said the analyses “break down some very common stereotypes” of gays. “Same-sex couples are much more diverse than I think our media presentations would indicate,” he said.
