!! OMG, where do I sign up?: Property Tycoon Posts HK1billion ‘Dowry’ To Find A Husband For His Happily Lesbian Daughter !!

gigi-chao.jpg
Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, a high-powered and hugely successful property tycoon in Hong Kong, has offered a 1 BILLION HK DOLLAR bounty to any male who can woo his daughter into becoming her husband. The only problem is, is that his daughter Gigi plays for the opposite team! She’s also already found someone she loves, and is already an advocate for LGBTQ rights! Anyway — Gigi sounds rad, and provided some very tongue-in-cheek alternative suggestions for her dad’s offering:

“I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive,” the socialite said in an interview with the Post after her father announced that he was doubling the “dowry” he offered back in 2012 which lured in more than 20,000 suitors.
“Alternatively, I would be happy to befriend any man willing to donate huge amounts of money to my charity, Faith in Love, provided they don’t mind that I already have a wife. Third and lastly, thank you Daddy, I love you too,” she said in the interview.
Gigi works as an executive director at her father’s Cheuk Kang property development company and is known for her charity work and for her position as chairwoman of the Faith in Love Foundation. She is also an advocate for LGBT rights and a founding member of the Big Love Alliance.
She told the Post that while her father’s insistence on finding her a husband has not hurt their relationship, the highly-publicized offers have made her partner of nine years, Sean Eav, “distraught”.
“I understand that he loves me, it’s just he’s from another time and it’s difficult for him to understand the plight of the LGBT [community]. 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,” she said.
Chao reportedly believes that it’s not too late to change Gigi’s thinking because she’s only 33 years old. “I don’t want to interfere with my daughter’s private life,” Chao said in an interview with Malaysian newspaper Nanyang Siang Pau on January 20, “I only hope for her to have a good marriage and children as well as inherit my business.”

It’s always shocking the amount of denial an incredibly smart person can live with! I mean, if Cecil Chao Sze-tsung made his billions through building an empire with smart, strategic property sales, why can’t he seem to wrap his brain around his daughter’s sexuality? That being said, if any of you ladies own a fake moustache, a suit, and a top hat — this may be just the homewrecking opportunity you’ve be waiting for!

!! OMG, “there’s usually a lot more crying”: Lesbians react to the sex scenes from ‘Blue Is The Warmest Color’ !!


We loved catching Blue Is The Warmest Color at the TIFF Bell Lightbox this past week. We thought that the story had great heart, captured many of the aspects of a (first) gay relationship, and the film was incredibly acted!
However, we’ve heard that there’s been some “beef” between the lead actresses and the film’s director in regards to their sex scenes, a butting of the heads of sorts. Some of the lesbian community has also come forward in saying that the sex scenes do not represent what really happens behind closed doors for them.
Regardless of the sex, we think it’s worth the watch, and that it’s a beautiful and tragic love story. To chill everyone out and give them a cigarette so they can just relax and laugh a little (it is a movie, afterall), check out some lady-lovers’ reactions to the sex scenes above!
[thanks Kev!]

!! OMG, it will scare your tits off: Killjoy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House !!

Screen Shot 2013-10-17 at 12.12.10 PM.png
Last night we had the pleasure of experiencing a world we’d never imagined we would venture into! The front-lines of the lesbian, feminist, afterlife! It was a terrifying, twisted, hilarious, AND totally informative adventure, and we’re glad we got the chance to see it! A bit about Killjoy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House:

Each Hallowe’en radical evangelical groups all over the USA and Canada build hell houses. Beginning in the 70’s, these performer-animated installations showcase a gruesome retribution for the sins of fornication, abortion, suicide, occultism, and– of course–same-sex relationships. This Hallowe’en Toronto artist Allyson Mitchell reclaims this hellish scenario with her crowd-sourced, lesbian-feminist, queer-fear-fighting and reinforcing Kill Joy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House.
Wrapping this American Gothic Hell House tradition with yard upon illustrated, elaborately decorated yard of spirited craft aesthetic, Mitchell mobilizes her “deep lez” commitment to radical queer world-making potential. Through it, she conjures new kinds of representations of feminist sexuality and queer concepts of community and activism.
Rug-hooked, crocheted, and paper maché’d constructions are horrific wonders for visitations of the undead lesbian community, some who’s ideas are happily buried forever and some who are hell-bent on remaining nightmarishly non-assimilated. Casting the spells of freaky feminist skill sharing and paranormal consciousness raising together with ghouls, bio-engineered monsters, indoctrinators, and avengers, this hell house is designed to pervert, not convert. These spirits dance in a complex mashy web of maligned feminist lesbian histories in tandem with the undead feminist monsters who insist on malicious gate keeping and movement stomping.

The house was incredibly well-executed, our tourguide was super informative, and we learned a lot about the world of our queer female and trans brothers and sisters! We highly recommend (or recommend highly?) checking out this house of horrors if you happen to be in the Toronto area!
Killjoy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House is on until October 30th, but get there early! (The line is worth the wait.)
BONUS! Check out this special Riot Ghoul mix of horrors that Don Pyle created specially for the piece!
