America's first LGBTQ credit union to launch in Michigan

The first credit union dedicated to serving the LGBTQ community across the country is getting its start in Michigan.

On Monday, the state approved a charter for Superbia Credit Union. Myles Meyers, founder and CEO of New York-based Superbia Services, said in a post on LinkedIn that contained a photo of the signing of the executive order to approve the launch of the credit union, noting that it will be the "first financial institution solely dedicated to serve the LGBTQ community across the country."

Online financial services are expected to be offered in early 2020.

"An inclusive organization, anyone in support of the LGBTQ affirming mission is welcomed to join and become a member," the organization says on its website, superbiafinancial.com.

SuperbiaUSA has been raising money for more than a year to help establish the credit union, including an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
