Why We Ride
We ride to raise funds, awareness and visibility for the Asian LGBT+ community.
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 at the end of October. The ASIA Rainbow Ride is scheduled the weekend before so that we can be part of the Pride festivities.
