Episode 46 – From Queer Sri Lankan Immigrant to LA Real Estate Owner with Gaya Wadu

From Queer Sri Lankan Immigrant to LA Real Estate Owner with Gaya Wadu

Today to celebrate pride, I have my good friend, Gaya Wadu join us. Gaya and I met at the Aqua Girl queer pool party in Miami Beach in 2019, and we’ve been partying it up at the Dinah Shore queer pool party in Palm Springs every year since. Gaya is a queer immigrant from Sri Lanka and lives in Los Angeles.

She’s an advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities and resources developer, and she advocates for investing in real estate for the queer community. She loves to travel like Charly.

Listen to this interview to learn all about how she grew up in Sri Lanka and The Seychelles, why she calls LA her home, and she shares her real estate purchasing strategies. You can find Gaya twerking in West Hollywood on the weekends and on facebook at Gaya Wadu.

I’m SO excited to team up with ⁠Tamarindo Podcast⁠ to bring to you: “Money Chisme”, a safe and inclusive space to talk money and get a money mindset reset on July 20th in Los Angels. This will be a fun and educational evening with interactive money chisme! This event is in partnership with The Pop-Hop, an independent bookshop and creative learning space that amplifies marginalized voices, supports community growth, and empowers collective good works to build a healthier, more equitable neighborhood. You’ll have time to shop and check out all their goodies!

Registration is “pay-what-you-can” and your contribution helps us keep bringing fun and informative conversations centered on community empowerment.
