Dunn and Gender Feeling

Dunn has always been open about their gender being bisexual. However, they have recently come out and introduced themselves as non-binary.

As simple as it was for them to open up about being bisexual, the same was not the case while coming out non-binary. Dunn said that they have a very supportive fan base, and most of them are bisexual, cis women whom they did not want to disappoint by their revelation

"For a long time, that pressure kept me from exploring gender because I didn't want to disappoint any of my fan base, which were largely bisexual cis women," Dunn said. "It feels selfish to do something for yourself, such as come out as nonbinary or change your pronouns . . . For a long time, I felt like I was going to be inconveniencing my fan base."

Dunn began discussing gender online, such as lip-syncing to a song about being nonbinary on TikTok or implying their feelings in Discord chats. They said she felt relieved after going public with they/them pronouns on Instagram, but reading posts and comments regarding their gender online introduced a new set of issues. 

Dunn believes that being misgendered by a single person is bad enough, but being frequently misgendered online is even worse. "To me, it often felt like hundreds of people at once were misgendering me and I didn't know how to deal with that," they said in a 2021 interview with Pop Sugar.

However, Dunn said they had to set clear boundaries, such as deleting Twitter. Nonetheless, they finally talked about their gender feelings in one of their podcast Just Between Us episodes on 16 December 2020. They said, "I get overwhelmed. Still, I'm not at a place where I have solid answers."

Net Worth & Income

According to a 2018 article on CNBC, Dunn earns a six-figure annual salary. However, their primary income source is their writing works, podcasts, and books.

As of February 2022, they have published four books, two of which they co-authored with their podcast partner Allison Raskin. Moreover, their solo book 'Bad With Money' earned them $150k in advance in January.

Furthermore, Dunn sometimes makes around $50,000 from their association with major TV Networks. It adds up to their $2000 per season salary from 'Bad With Money with Gaby Dunn.'
