Bad Ass Bitch of the Week

GigiGigi Chao, prominent business woman and daughter of Hong Kong real estate mogul, is making unicorns sing and corgis dance by getting married to her lady-partner Sean Eav. Now while gay marriages are more common and accepted in (most states) of the US, in Hong Kong your mother bangs her head against a wall and your father offers $40 million dollars to the man who can "save" you. However, Gigi is embracing her new role as LGBT spokesperson because she is a bad ass bitch:  "It is the age of social media. Lack of privacy is the status quo. I've been thrust into the limelight, in a position where all eyes are on me. I can either feel victimized, or empowered."

And according to Betty Grisoni, from Hong Kong's largest lesbian organization Les Peches, "there is less everyday discrimination in the city" due to Chao's courage. Get it girl!
