Jackie Chan’s estranged daughter and her partner claim they’ve been homeless and sleeping under a bridge “due to homophobic parents.”
Etta Ng, 18, and her girlfriend Andi Autumn posted a short video to YouTube last week claiming that they’ve run out of options because their friends and family have refused to offer them support.
“We’ve been homeless for a month due to homophobic parents. We pretty much slept under a bridge, and other things,” Ng said.
“We’ve gone to the police, we’ve gone to the hospitals, the food banks, the LGBTQ community shelters and all of them just don’t give a s—,” she continued.
Autumn added, “We will have to be split up if we go to any kind of government facility.”
“We don’t know what to do at this point,” Ng continued. “We just want to let people know what’s going on because at this point it seems ridiculous that no one can help. I don’t understand.”

Ng is Chan’s daughter with former beauty queen Elaine Ng, with whom the actor had a relationship with while married to his current wife Joan Lin. The actor, who made $49 million last year according to Forbes, has not spoken publicly about his daughter but has acknowledged he had an affair.
Speaking to the website Coconuts, Elaine denounced her daughter’s claims, saying she needs to find a job.
“I feel that if they have no money, they should go find work,” she said. “They shouldn’t film a clip telling others they are broke and who Etta’s father is. People all over the world work hard and don’t rely on someone else’s fame to get money.”
Ng previously told the Express that the actor, 64, has “never existed in my life. I will never regard him as a father.”
“I would not say that he is my dad. I would say, ‘Oh, Jackie Chan, an actor,'” she said.
Ng went public with her sexuality and introduced the world to Autumn in a series of touching emotional Instagram posts last October.
Sharing a photo of herself silhouetted against a rainbow back ground on Instagram, she wrote in the caption, “🌈 #lgbtqai #lgbt #lesbian#androgynous.”
The teenager’s partner, Canadian social media influencer Autumn, then took to Instagram to confirm they were dating. 
The couple quickly received a lot of support from fans and commenters, which blew Ng away.
“I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way,” Ng wrote in the caption. “I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity.
“People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock,” she continued. “I’ve grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me.”
Autumn shared with fans just what her girlfriend means to her.
I am in awe at the amount of support and love poured my way. I am speechless at how followers went to my Girlfriend @andiautumn and my account to show us both so much positivity. People all over the world have been rooting us on as Hong Kong media continues to mock. I've grown up in a world of negativity and close mindedness but I am at that point where I realise that I can use my experience to tell my truths and help others just like me. Thankfully I've grown since the days I was powerless and uncertain what the world has for me. Thank you for the enormous outpour of love and acceptance. 🌈❤️🙌🏻💪🏻 我對於大家的支持和愛感到十分驚喜與感激。你們在我和我女朋友 @andiautumn 的instagram户口留下的正能量實在令我感恩。多謝來自世界各地的你們給我的祝福,令我感到恩惠,當香港傳媒不斷去評論我的生活時,令我感受到無比的壓力。我從小在一個佈滿負面和封閉的環境下長大,但是隨著社會進步,我希望能夠利用我的故事來説出真相從而幫助其他和我處境一樣的人。我曾經對於世界和未來感到非常無助和迷惘,但慶幸身邊一直有不同的人去支持和鼓勵我,令我想通了,成長了。最後我想再次多謝大家的關懷和接受。🌈❤️🙌🏻🦄 #lgbt #androgynous #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovewins #lovealwayswins #lesbian #love #support #🌈 #androgynous #queer #gay #gaygram #loveyourself #advocacy
Thank you to all of those who have shown love and support towards @stolenmilktea and I. We appreciate everyone's kind words and it's honestly giving us more energy to fight for what's right. We will continue to share our journey and hope we can help others along the way. Let's make this world a peaceful and understanding one. #pansexual #lgbtqai #loveislove #lovealwayswins #queer #loveyourself
“I’ve never met anyone like @stolenmilktea,” she wrote in the caption. “She has given me a chance to fully express the running thoughts in my head.
“We’ve been pushed down again and again but its worth it knowing we will get through it together, side by side,” Autumn continued. “We are living in such an international city and yet so many people have their minds closed off.
“But, none of it matters when I know every morning your going to be next to me,” she added. “I love you . 💟.”

Aaron Hern.Moved $$ to 3 Accounts 1 was to Silence His ExMale Lover

Believing in the Bible(guilt) and wanting the false security of a locked closet because of family and friends (fear) killed Hernandez and it still kills thousands a year between the US and England alone. Until the straight world, particularly families raising kids stop putting pressure on their kids that straight is good and gay is suffering (suffering that they themselves impose on their kids) this problem will not stop.

I have a niece that asked her pre teenager daughter if she was gay because she read one of her emails and said that was signed “I love you”

She approached her daughter with tears in her eyes and told her that she would love her no matter what but she had to tell her if she was a lesbian. When she told me I was in shock and I told her 
“of coarse she told you, she was straight and may be she is not but if she was gay she will never tell you." I stop trusting her from that moment on because I knew she felt the same way about me. She could not help my being gay but she would rather not have be gay (these are things one gets from another person without words). Homophobia is not that you commit crimes against gays, Homophobia is fear of being gay which in turn makes you fear the ones you love to be gay. I grew up Evangelical and I know the damaged that did.I am glad I had the opportunity to become a seminarian with 5 years of study throughout all my teens. It gave the tools to search for the truth not for myths you are taught from the first day you step in a church.

Aaron Hernandez sister was willing to go to jail for him by hiding the gun that he was accused of using for the murders he was accused and latter acquitted of committing. That was ok for her. It was ok to loose her kids, She was protecting blood. But before he killed himself she is taped on her final conversation with him telling him “ I would have not done it if I knew you were a ‘loose wrist’ (another way to call someone a fag). Can you imagine how repulsed she felt for her blood she loved when she finds out a piece of private information. It didn’t change him, he was what he was and she was accepting of him even as a murderer! But not as gay or bisexual. Why would it be anyone business where you stick your dick? I have asked that question so many times!

But is not that easy. For uneducated people on the subject,  they want to remain uneducated. How many times I tried to give my niece the information I had and how I was wired. She never paid attention when I talked to her saying that I was her uncle and she didn’t care. She didn’t care about me her uncle but she cared about her daughter. Trying to give her information was like beating your head against a cement wall. Time after time I got the unsaid message “Im ok you are gay, don’t push it.” It was a good thing when I came out I only cared what one person thought, my mom and I figured that if she really loved me the way she said, it will make no difference to her and it never did. 
I did get rid of girl fiends and straight friends before I did it. I wanted to deal with just myself because I was  not too happy with it, particularly being an evangelical.  In my own quiet way I was as homophobic as homophobic can be. Dind’t beat up anybody nor insulted anybody but I was care shitless and it also drove me to suicide. I just got lucky, only nine days in the hospital and my doctor agree to keep my secret about suicide. This was a jewish doctor at Maimonides Hospital in Boro-Park, Brooklyn. He knew that the best way to keep me from doing it again was not to create more problems for me. Never attempted it again but remained a little reckless not caring too much about being around since I still felt I had to put up with my family’s and other’s homophobia. It’s an awful feeling to imagine that one does not belong.

On April 19, sometime before 3 a.m., Aaron Hernandez, the former star New England Patriots tight end, scrawled three notes—one to his fiancée, the mother of his little girl, one to that daughter and a third to his close prison friend—and placed them next to a Bible in his solitary prison cell in the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.

The Bible was opened to a section of the New Testament, John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him would not perish but have eternal life.” He had scrawled that verse on his forehead with red ink, and also made marks on his hands and feet with that red pen, as though mimicking the stigmata associated with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. 

Then the 27-year-old former NFL star serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder, jammed the track of his cell door with cardboard to prevent guards from coming in, slicked the floor with liquid soap and shampoo (which investigators believe he did to make it harder for him to back out in case he lost his nerve), wrapped his bed sheet around his neck multiple times and then tied one end of it to a bar on the window of his cell.

A correction officer saw his limp body through the cell door at 3:03 a.m., and tried to resuscitate him. Hernandez was then rushed to UMass Leominster hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:07 a.m.

It was an ugly end to the former NFL star’s often ugly life and it came on the same day players on his former team traveled to the White House to celebrate the New England Patriot’s Super Bowl win. Questions immediately began to swirl about why Hernandez, who had been acquitted five days earlier in connection with a separate double murder charge stemming from a drive-by shooting in 2012, picked this time to die.
That’s just one of many mysteries Hernandez, known for never shedding the gang connections he made growing up, left behind. He was convicted in April 2015 for shooting and killing his friend, Odin Lloyd, seemingly without motive. But interviews with multiple law enforcement officials directly involved in the case say Lloyd—a semipro football player who was dating Hernandez’s fiance’s sister at the time—had information the football star did not want out: that he was bisexual.

Motivation to Murder?

One of the notes left by Hernandez was to his prison boyfriend, who is now on 24/7 suicide watch, multiple law enforcement sources confirm. Hernandez’s sexuality would, of course, not be relevant save for the fact that an intimate relationship he allegedly had with a male former high school classmate was at the center of the investigation into Lloyd’s murder. 

Ernest Wallace, a co-defendant in the Lloyd murder case, told detectives the victim had called Hernandez a “schmoocher,” which was taken by Hernandez and his companions as a gay slur. Wallace was also recorded saying during a jailhouse visit with Tanya Singleton, Hernandez’s cousin, that he would not have helped Hernandez get rid of the murder weapon—a crime for which he is now serving a 4½-to-7 year sentence on accessory to murder charges—if he had known Hernandez was a “limp wrist,” multiple sources say. 

Singleton was accused of helping Wallace discard of Lloyd’s murder weapon and was later sentenced to two years probation with one year under house confinement after pleading guilty to criminal contempt for refusing to cooperate with investigators in Boston investigating the double murder. Prosecutors in both Bristol and Suffolk counties said Hernandez had promised to set up a trust fund for Singleton’s children for her silence but never did.  

Hernandez’s alleged longtime male lover, the high school friend, was interviewed extensively by authorities after Lloyd’s murder, and was forced to testify in front of a grand jury. Law enforcement officials also say Hernandez moved a large amount of money into three accounts shortly before his arrest for the Lloyd killing: one account was for his fiancée; a second was for his daughter; the third, where the most money was moved, was for that friend.

Hernandez’s secrets went well beyond his sex life, according to court testimony and police records. His brushes with the law for extreme acts of violence began when he was playing football at the University of Florida. In 2007, Hernandez, then 17, was identified as a person of interest in a double shooting.

Then came a shooting in July 2012, when a Boston man spilled a drink on Hernandez but didn’t apologize. Prosecutors said that when an enraged Hernandez saw the same men later that night in a BMW, he leaned across a friend, Alexander Bradley, who was driving a Toyota SUV, from the passenger seat, and yelled to the occupants, "What's up now, n****s?" Hernandez squeezed off five shots into the vehicle, according to Bradley. Two men died, a third was wounded. Hernandez was acquitted in that case last week after six days of deliberation. Jurors refused to comment on their verdict, but legal analysts speculate that the prosecution’s case was weakened by the fact that its main witness, Bradley, is a career criminal who had testified he wanted to hurt Hernandez.

Seven months after the Boston double murder, after a night at a Florida strip club in February 2012, Bradley says Hernandez shot him in the head, pushed him out of a vehicle and left him for dead. Bradley refused to cooperate with police but marked Hernandez for revenge. He testified on the stand in March 2017, "I didn't want to cooperate with police. I wanted Mr. Hernandez's life."
That threat apparently prompted Hernandez to surround himself with hard men from his gang past, men like Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz, who became Hernandez’s co-defendants after the murder of Lloyd in June 2013. Both men told investigators that Hernandez was the gunman in that killing. But it was the other information that Wallace offered about the motive that never made headlines, the fact that Lloyd knew Hernandez had a complicated sex life and could pass that information to his girlfriend, the sister of the Patriot’s player’s fiancée.

It was also well known that Hernandez was high on hydroponic marijuana the night Lloyd was shot and killed, and  prosecutors said a joint with his DNA was found near Lloyd’s body. Bradley told the court that Hernandez was a daily marijuana smoker and said he knew that because he was the NFL player’s dealer. Investigators are now looking into claims by inmates at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center that Hernandez was smoking K2, synthetic marijuana, the night of his suicide.

A brief fight over Hernandez’s brain ended Thursday when the Worcester County District Attorney said his family’s wishes would be met and his brain would be studied by the vaunted CTE Center at Boston University, where scientists are researching the effects of concussions on the brains of athletes. Initially, the state medical examiner said that its pathologists wanted to study Hernandez’s brain, leading his attorney, Jose Baez, to claim this week that the ME was “illegally” holding onto the former NFL star’s brain, against the family’s wishes. After Baez’s press conference, held outside the ME’s office, Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early released the brain.

Father’s Homophobic FB Rant about son’s “Gay Play”

Father reported for homophobia after complaint about 'gay play' at son's school

A parent allegedly posted a homophobic rant on Facebook after his son’s school staged a play where two princes fell in love.
Julian Marsh wrote a public post on social media complaining his son came home ‘talking about gays, saying he had learned about gays.’
He accused the school of social engineering and claimed: ‘I think people who promote PC sex to kids below 11 border on paedophilia and are depraved. 

‘It has nothing to do with gay sex that upset us but the lack of parental consent, a bit like finding the school had decided it has the right to vaccinate your kids for you and did it without your consent because it knows best.’
Now the headteacher of Sacred Heart RC Primary in Atherton, near Wigan, has vowed to stand up to homophobia. Carrie Morrow said she was shocked the workshop aimed at teaching children about diversity was criticised by a ‘small minority’ of parents on Facebook.

Actors from a theatre company came in to perform the fairytale where two princes fall in love, to teach pupils there are many different kinds of relationships.
But not everyone was impressed. Mr Marsh was reported to police by another user for his comments, along with another man, and both have since been spoken to by officers.
‘I know for some schools it is not an easy aspect of the curriculum to teach, but our pupils handled it with maturity and sensitivity,’ Ms Morrow said, adding she was proud to be one of the first schools locally to publicly stand up to homophobia.

As well as watching the play, children were asked to design a logo for Wigan’s first Pride festival and were told when it was acceptable to use the word gay.
When Mr Marsh was approached by the Manchester Evening News, he said he was not homophobic and did not wish to comment further.

GMP Police

A police spokesman said: ‘Shortly after 10.25pm on Sunday February 28, police were called to reports that a number of homophobic comments had been made on Facebook.
‘This was investigated as a hate incident but it was determined that the comments did not amount to a criminal offence.
‘Local resolution officers spoke to all parties involved and advised two men of their future conduct on social media.’

Colin Farrell comes out with his Gay Brother to fight the Homophobia he has experienced

Colin Farrell is fighting a fight in Ireland but with nothing other than words and his gay brother. He is fighting for gay marriage in Ireland and to fight the homophobia that is stopping it. What a good bro! Not too many people are blessed with a straight brother that would stop his successful life and say I want to fight for my gay brother. It seems that unlike families that really have no idea how their siblings suffer from homophobia and the everyday life of a gay person. I thought that only another gay person could know this but Colin is showing that if you take interest on your brother, sister son or daughter you can come to the point of Colin who seems to know what his brother is and what he goes through and have been through. Here Here for Collin!      Adam Gonzalez

Colin Farrell has written a heartfelt op-ed for the Sunday World, a paper in Ireland, in which he pleads for readers to vote for same sex marriage rights. The actor, born and raised in Dublin, candidly and intimately opens up about his gay brother, Eamon, and his sibling’s awful experiences with homophobia growing up in the Irish country.
Farrell writes, “I think I found out my brother wasn’t grovelling in heterosexual mud like most boys our age when I was around 12. I remember feeling surprised. Intrigued. Curious. Not bi-curious before you start getting ideas. I was curious because it was different from anything I’d known or heard of and yet it didn’t seem unnatural to me. I had no reference for the existence of homosexuality. I had seen, by that age, no gay couples together. I just knew my brother liked men and, I repeat, it didn’t seem unnatural to me.”
“My brother Eamon didn’t choose to be gay. Yes, he chose to wear eyeliner to school and that probably wasn’t the most pragmatic response to the daily torture he experienced at the hands of school bullies,” says the actor. “But he was always proud of who he was. Proud and defiant and, of course, provocative. Even when others were casting him out with fists and ridicule and the laughter of pure loathsome derision, he maintained an integrity and dignity that flew in the face of the cruelty that befell him.”
Farrell notes, “I don’t know where those bullies are now, the ones who beat him regularly. Maybe some of them have found peace and would rather forget their own part of a painful past. Maybe they’re sitting on bar stools and talking about ‘birds and f*ggots’ and why one’s the cure and the other the disease.” He goes on, “But I do know where my brother is. He’s at home in Dublin living in peace and love with his husband of some years, Steven. They are about the healthiest and happiest couple I know. They had to travel a little farther than down the aisle to make their vows, though, to Canada, where their marriage was celebrated.”
“That’s why this is personal to me. The fact that my brother had to leave Ireland to have his dream of being married become real is insane. INSANE,” writes Farrell. “It’s time to right the scales of justice here. To sign up and register to vote next year so that each individual’s voice can be heard.”
Farrell further points out, “How often do we get to make history in our lives? Not just personal history. Familial. Social. Communal. Global. The world will be watching. We will lead by example. Let’s lead toward light.” The full piece appears in the Sunday World print edition. Farrell is pictured above with Eamon in 2003. What do you think of his column?

Young gay Disowned by family Receives Nearly $100,000 in Support


A harrowing five-minute video of Daniel Ashley Pierce’s family berating him over his homosexuality has earned the 20-year-old sympathy and support from around the globe. A lot of support: A Gofundme account collecting donations to support Pierce after he was kicked out of his family’s Georgia home brought in nearly $100,000.
Earlier this week, Pierce posted an update to the crowd funding page asking supporters and friends to direct future donations to the Atlanta-based charity that’s helping him rebuild his life.
adamfoxie posted on the 30th of August the story:
That charity, Lost-N-Found, provides support to homeless LGBT youths in the area and helps them find housing. “It’s important for all of you to know that right now, what I need most is time to think and work through the next steps in my life,” Pierce wrote. “Right now, I’m safe and definitely feel your love all around me. Thank you!”
Pierce’s video, which is titled “How not to react when your child tells you that he’s gay,” now has nearly 6 million views on YouTube. It is, he has said, a secret recording of his family’s “delayed intervention” months after he came out as being gay. The camera captures the audio of the confrontation between Pierce and his family, but not the visuals.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Pierce said that his father, stepmother and grandparents were in the room.
A woman who is apparently Pierce’s grandmother says that she has “known you were gay since you were a tiny boy,” and then continues to condemn the “choice” he has made to be gay.
Pierce responds: “I have not made a choice.”
She disagrees: “You can deny it all you want to, but I believe in the word of God, and God creates nobody that way.”
The discussion and the confrontation rapidly escalate.
Pierce’s grandmother is heard telling him he needs to move out of the house, “because I will not let people believe that I condone what you do.” 
Another woman, apparently Pierce’s stepmother, angrily tells Pierce: “You know you wasn’t born that way. You know damn good and well you made that choice. You know that [your father] has done everything he can to raise you. … He didn’t need to blame himself.”
After a short argument between Pierce and his stepmother over the content of a Facebook post about his father, people are heard yelling expletives and anti-gay slurs as Pierce tells his relatives not to hit him.
“You’re a disgrace,” a man who appears to be Pierce’s father tells him shortly before the end of the video.
“I’m not a disgrace,” Pierce replies.
Pierce told the Huffington Post in an e-mail that he recorded the exchange because, he said: “I wanted to make sure there was evidence in case something happened.”
His relatives, he told Huffington Post, have since instructed him — via voicemail — to remove the video from YouTube. He has not complied.
On Facebook, Pierce identifies himself as a business administration major at Georgia Highlands College, according to the Atlanta Constitution-Journal.
In his initial appeal for funding, Pierce wrote that he “was basically beaten and thrown from my home of 19 years,” adding: “They took everything including my college text books. I intend to use this money to get the basic things I need such as a bed, text books, medical stuff and transportation.”
The full video is below. Warning: The video contains graphic language and may be disturbing.

Family of Georgia Gay teen Turns on him and Kicks him Out


When Daniel Ashley Pierce told his family last October that he was gay, his stepmother seemed to be supportive, and his father had no response.
All that changed Wednesday, when Pierce’s family attempted to stage a delayed intervention, berating the 20-year-old for “choosing” to be gay and demanding that he move out of the family’s home.
But Pierce, who, according to his public Facebook page, is studying business administration at Georgia Highlands College in Rome, might have the last word, as a video he recorded of the confrontation has gone viral.
The five-minute, profanity-laced video, originally posted by a friend of Pierce’s, has logged more than 2 million views, and a GoFundMe site set up to raise money for Pierce’s living expenses has raised over $56,000 in one day. On the video, which doesn’t show faces, a conversation among Pierce and family members escalates into a physical altercation with screaming and profanity. In a Facebook posting about the incident, Pierce said, “What a day. I thought that waking up at 9:48 and being 15 mins late to work was going to be the biggest problem today. But I didn’t know that my biggest problem was going to be getting disowned and kicked out of my home of almost twenty years. To add insult to injury, my stepmother punched me in the face repeatedly with my grandmother cheering her along. I am still in complete shock and disbelief.”
More than 21,000 comments have been left on the YouTube video of the confrontation.
Thursday night, Pierce posted another note on Facebook: “Thank you for all of your support. I need some down time for myself and I am in a safe place.”

NC Woman Arrested for Trying To Beat The Gay Out of Her Son

A North Carolina woman who allegedly attempted to “beat the gay” out of her teenage son is facing child abuse charges, police report.
Responding to a 911 call, a cop arrived last Saturday evening to the Whiteville residence Mary Gowans, 41, shares with her children. An officer noted there “was yelling and screaming from several subjects outside the house.”
According to a Whiteville Police Department report, the teenager told an officer that Gowans, seen at right, had instructed his younger brother to “strike him repeatedly and he was instructed not to fight back.”
The victim told police that his mother then made him strip to his underwear and “proceeded to strike him with a belt across his body.” The brothers told police that their mother“stated that she was going to beat the gay out of him.”
Gowans also allegedly struck the victim “with a stick that left a large abrasion on his left shoulder.” The victim’s injuries were photographed after the he was transported to the office of a magistrate.
Free on bond, Gowans is scheduled for an October 9 District Court hearing in the child abuse case. She was previously busted this year for assault and battery and, following the abuse bust, was collared for driving without a license and driving with a child in the car’s front seat.
