In 2007, we met for the first time on a training ride for the AIDS Lifecycle, a week long bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles that raises money to end AIDS. The AIDS Lifecycle gave us a place to celebrate our queerness and find LGBTQ+ friends in San Francisco.
When we moved to Taiwan in 2020, Lisa did the Tour of Taiwan, a week long bike ride circumnavigating the island. She came back with a vision to start a charity bike ride in Asia similar to the experience of the AIDS Lifecycle in California.
Together with local friends, we co-founded the Asia Rainbow Ride, a three day charity bike ride in Taiwan that raises money for LGBTQ+ causes. In its fourth year, the Asia Rainbow Ride now attracts cyclists from around the world. We volunteer our time as members of the Board of Directors.
At Modern Family Finance we believe that financial empowerment is key to strengthening our global LGBT community. We’re proud to be a purpose-led business and to volunteer our time to uplift those around us.
