Gigi Chao

Gigi Chao unwittingly became the poster girl of Hong Kong’s hitherto low-key LGBT community in 2012 after her billionaire father Cecil offered $1 billion to any male who could marry her. This came after Chao’s marriage to her lesbian partner, Sean Eav. Career-wise, she is vice chairman of the family property firm Cheuk Nang; she also founded philanthropic group Faith in Love and is an avid helicopter pilot.
