The daughter of Hong Kong property tycoon Cecil Chao has published an open letter to her father in two local newspapers, asking him to accept her homosexuality. Unusual, yes, but Gigi Chao, 34, appears to communicate exclusively with her (unusually embarrassing) father through the press. It’s where Cecil announced last week that he would double the $65 million bounty he offered in 2012 for the man who would turn his model daughter straight and marry her, the AP reports. (Cecil had recently found out about Gigi’s France wedding with partner Sean Eav.) "Now, I'm not asking you to be best of friends,” wrote Gigi, who often pilots her father around in his helicopter. “However, it would mean the world to me if you could just not be so terrified of her, and treat her like a normal, dignified human being." She has also said she will marry a man when her father does, "since Dad thinks it's so easy for me to switch from gay to straight." Don’t worry, Sacha Baron Cohen is already working on the movie version.
