She also slammed the Hong Kong media for “continuing to mock” her.

In an Instagram post written early this morning, the 17-year-old wrote: “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.”

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

Meanwhile, her girlfriend Andi Autumn also took to Instagram to thank people for their positive messages following Ng’s revelation.

“Thank you to all of those who have shown love and support towards @stolenmilktea and I,” the 30-year-old Canadian wrote.

“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.”

On Thursday, Ng took to Instagram and captioned a picture of herself against a rainbow background with the words: “In case no one got the memo, I’m gay.”

She has since removed that caption to replace it with several hashtags: #lgbtqai, #lgbt, #lesbian and #androgynous.

It’s an open secret in Hong Kong that Ng and Andi Autumn have been in a relationship for several months.

Ng was born after Chan and her mother, former Hong Kong beauty queen Elaine Ng, had an affair in the 90s.

She has often found herself in the Hong Kong gossip columns due to her paternity and difficult relationship with her mother, who most recently was arrested on suspicion of criminal intimidation after she got embroiled in a domestic dispute with her daughter.

However, it is understood that any tensions between mother and daughter are not due to Ng’s sexual orientation.

Hong Kong press quoted Elaine as saying that she has an amicable relationship with her daughter’s girlfriend who regularly drops by to see her at home. 

Andi Autumn is a social influencer who designs and sells clothes online and is known for her Barbie doll-like get-ups.
