Why We Ride

100% of profits from the ride will be donated to organizations dedicated to LGBT+ services in Asia. We ride to raise funds, awareness and visibility for the Asian LGBT+ community.

 

Our Beneficiaries for 2020

Why Taiwan?

 

Taiwan is leading the forefront in Asia as a model for other countries to embrace diversity. In May 2019, Taiwan’s government passed marriage equality, signaling to the world that LGBT+ people in Asia deserve equal rights.

The ASIA Rainbow Ride is about people coming together who want to ensure the freedom to love in Asia. The ride is for LGBT+, allies, local Taiwanese, Asians and foreign travelers. We’re creating an annual event where everyone is welcome. You’ll cycle, tour Taiwan, and experience a community of people who want to make the world a more equal place. 

Taipei has the largest Pride event in ASIA. Taipei Pride will take place October 31st, 2020. The ASIA Rainbow Ride is scheduled the weekend before so that we can be part of the Pride festivities.
