目前,在亞洲仍有超過20個國家將同性性行為視為非法,但同在亞洲的台灣率先於2019年通過同性婚姻法案,成為亞洲第一!而亞洲彩虹騎行的出現是盼望在亞洲不論何處,都能無所畏懼地相愛。

因此,這場騎行活動歡迎所有男女同志、雙性戀、跨性別、陰陽人、與支持平權的異性戀朋友們,不論您來自台灣當地、或是海外都可以一起參加。在這年度活動中,來自全世界的人們可以自由地交流想法,同時在騎腳踏車的過程中挑戰身體與意志的極限,同時為亞洲的同志社群盡一份心力。

活動的六位創始人分別來自台灣、馬來西亞、上海、新加坡和美國 ,今年的活動將與台灣在地推動平權的重要非營利組織台灣彩虹平權大平台協會(前身為婚姻平權大平台)共同合作,活動收益也將捐助彩虹平權大平台。

創始人之一Jennifer Chang Dazols表示, 「我和妻子在美國愛滋騎行(AIDS Lifecycle)當中認識,那是一個在加州為HIV支持服務募資的騎行活動。作為一個台裔美國人,我為能在亞洲發起相似理念的活動而感到驕傲。」

創始人之一Olivia Wu說,「我很興奮能共同舉辦這樣的活動。人們可以在活動中認識新朋友,互相交流,並一起欣賞台灣美麗的風景。」

彩虹平權大平台執行長呂欣潔也說明:「台灣作為亞洲第一的通過同婚的國家,這條路並不容易,未來還有許多平權的未竟事宜需要努力,歡迎參加亞洲彩虹騎行,讓這樣堅毅的台灣精神持續下去!」

亞洲彩虹騎行定於2020年10月24至25日,將在台灣的十月同志驕傲月舉辦。參加者將從福隆開始出發,以台北為終點,途中經過台灣130km的東北角海岸。這將會是一個好玩的騎行,而不是一場競賽,所以歡迎不同程度、不同經驗的參加者們都能盡情享受。活動策劃團隊希望2022年的亞洲彩虹騎行能成為為期七日,全程910km的環島之旅。今年騎行的終點站將在具有LGBT+指標性的西門紅樓區舉辦閉幕儀式。

TAIWAN LAUNCHES FIRST ANNUAL ASIA RAINBOW RIDE

In a year when group tours are off limits for most of the world due to COVID, Taiwan’s success at containing the virus allows for the inauguration of the Asia Rainbow Ride, a charity bike ride around Taiwan for the LGBT community in Asia.

Right now same-sex activity is outlawed in over 20 Asian countries. Taiwan is leading the forefront in Asia as a model for other countries since passing same sex marriage in 2019.

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, and foreign travelers. This annual event is a safe haven for people from around the world to exchange ideas, challenge their physical and mental strength on a bike ride, and raise awareness and money for LGBT+ services in Asia.

The six co-founders have roots in Taiwan, Malaysia, Shanghai, Singapore, and San Francisco. They are collaborating with the local NGO “Taiwan Equality Campaign” (previously known as Marriage Equality Coalition Taiwan) who will be this years beneficiary.

Co-founder Jennifer Chang Dazols says, “my wife and I met while cycling on the AIDS Lifecycle, a charity bike ride that raises millions of dollars for HIV services in California. As a Taiwanese-American, I’m so proud to start a ride with a similar mission and community in Asia.”

Co-founder Olivia Wu follows, “I’m excited to facilitate an experience where new friends can come together to exchange ideas about equality all while enjoying the scenic beauty of Taiwan.”

Jennifer Lu, Executive Director of Taiwan Equality Campaign comments, “As the first country in Asia legalizing the same-sex marriage, it has been a long way. We are still fighting for true equality and welcome to join Asia Rainbow Ride to show our resilience and perseverance”

The Ride is planned for October 24th and 25th, 2020 during Taiwan’s Pride month. Participants will kick off at Fulong and end at Taipei, covering 130 kilometers along the northeast coastline of Taiwan. The event is a ride, not a race, so there is something for cyclists of all levels to enjoy. Organizers hope that by 2022, the Ride will be extended to a 7-day journey circumventing the 910 kilometers around Taiwan.

At the finishing line, riders and supporters will join together at a closing ceremony in the Ximen Red House neighborhood, the heart of the LGBT community.

Registration is now open. For more information or to register for the ASIA Rainbow please visit www.AsiaRainbowRide.com.
