Sup Travellers?! A billionaire from Hong Kong named Cecil Chao is on a mission to turn his daughter, Gigi Chao, away from Lesbianism. Back in September of 2012 Cecil made international headlines after he offered a handsome sum of $65 million to any man who could have wooed his daughter away from Lesbianism. Time Newsfeed reports that as much as 20,000 men lined up to take on the challenge but all of them failed miserably as Gigi remains sturdy in her sexuality. Cecil Chao is now getting desperate. He increased the reward from $65 million to a staggering $120 million.

"She can choose whatever she wants," the 76-year-old tycoon, who has reportedly slept with more than 10,000 women, said. "But anyone who comes along to pursue Gigi, we will give them a moderately deluxe life. I would not force her to marry a man. But obviously I would, from my point of view, prefer her to be married and to have grandchildren.


While Cecil is trying to get a male suitor for his daughter, 33 year old Gigi is happily married to her female partner, Sean Eav. Gigi Chao is a highly respected LGBT activist in Hong Kong and a founding member of the local gay rights group Big Love Alliance. She has expressed no desire to become straight despite her father's pleads. "I understand that he loves me," Gigi told the Daily Mail. "It's just he’s from another time and it's difficult for him to understand the plight of the LGBT.

"At the office it's business as usual. At family gatherings we hug and dance. And we just agree to disagree on what marriage is and family is.

No matter whose side you choose in this you can't deny the fact that Gigi is a big woman and is entitled to her own decisions once it has a firm legal backing. I do understand that Mr. Chao probably wants to see his daughter in a traditional family household with a man, wife and kids but sometimes you just can't get what you want. Gigi has made her decision but I guess you can't stop a man from trying. Mr. Chao probably believes that one man from somewhere in the world could turn his daughter straight and he's willing to put his money on it. I don't condemn him for his actions because he's a big man and he's entitled to his own decisions just as much as Gigi does. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

UPDATE: Cecil Chao has decided to axe the offer after being moved by an open letter from daughter Gigi pleading with him to accept her sexuality and to treat the female partner she has been with for nine years as "a normal, dignified human being." But even though Cecil decided to axe the offer he has made it clear that his tolerance only goes so far and he will not welcome his daughter's partner into the family.
