Texas Senator Pens Letter to Lesbian Daughter on Marriage Equality

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Texas State Senator Juan HinojosaDemocratic Texas state Senator Juan ‘Chuy’ Hinojosa write a beautiful letter to his daughter on marriage equality.

Towleroad.com reports:

From the moment you breathed life, when you first smiled up at me, I knew how strong the love of a father could be. An unconditional love for such an innocent child that only a father could know. As you began to grow, I hoped for a safe environment for you and wanted to protect you from the harsh realities of this unjust world. But as you matured into a strong young woman, I began to realize there were cruelties I could not protect you from — simply because of your sexual orientation. I could not protect you from the discrimination, ignorance or hate…

As a society, we should not tolerate acts of discrimination, hate or violence for any reason. We are all equals. I remain committed to the cause of equality and most importantly in fighting to protect you and the children of all fathers. All men and women should have the freedom to choose their partner. As you are all grown up now, you will still always be my little girl. I am very proud of you. I hope one day that you, too, can experience the love for a child. And I hope one day that your children will live in a world where they will not need protection for wanting to marry who they love.

One day soon, even Texas will have marriage equality.

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Hong Kong Man Offers $65 Million to Man Who Can Break Up Lesbian Daughter's MarriageA “$65 million to marry daughter bounty” is up for grabs. In this bit of strange news, Hong Kong real estate mogul Cecil Chao wants a man to marry his lesbian daughter who wed her same sex partner of seven years. Is Gigi Chao the focus of her father’s conservative views on gay marriage?

Wednesday, BBC News said the property Tycoon in Hong Kong put up the hefty inducement after reports surfaced that his 33-year-old-daughter wed her lesbian lover in France. It’s widely known that the country shuns gay marriage despite it being declared no longer a crime years ago.

Chao said $65 million is available to any man who marries his lesbian daughter. The catch is; he must win her heart. While it sounds like an attempt to “arrange” Gigi’s marriage, the Hong Kong man says that his daughter is not bound by the bounty; she is free to make her own decision.
