This Bride's Homophobic Father Refused To Walk Her Down The Aisle So Her Boss Did

A great boss can make or break your job. And by great I don't necessarily mean someone who's chill and lets you get away with anything you want. But a boss who generally cares for their employees. 

That can be expressed in a bunch of ways, like pushing employees to go the extra mile, taking care of them by sharing in the spoils of the business, and taking an active interest in their personal lives.

But this  employer seemed to go above and beyond standard "Awesome Boss" protocol.

HSBC Bank's CEO, John Li, walked his employee, Jennifer, down the aisle after her father refused to.

Jennifer's father was dead-set against her marriage, because it was to another woman.

Despite Jennifer's 11-year relationship with Sam, her father refuses to acknowledge their love for one another.

 "My parents are strongly against it. Whenever my father sees Sam, he will push her out and tell her to get lost," Jennifer said in a video posted by HSBC bank celebrating her big day.

Unfortunately, Taiwan hasn't legalized same sex marriages, so Jennifer and Sam's wedding was in ceremony only, but they're still counting it as a huge win for LGBTQ rights.
 "This wedding is really for the LGBTQ community. We hope our actions will encourage people and create respect among different communities." 
HSBC has been a longtime advocate for its LGBTQ rights - this isn't the first time the company has shown clear support.
