pink economy

a range of services, businesses, presses and clubs which serve the lesbian and gay communities, particularly in those Western cultures which have partly decriminalized HOMOSEXUALITY. Due to the greater economic power and social access afforded to men, the pink economy is predominantly owned and controlled by men. Lesbians tend to be marginalized within this economy.
