Events / On the Road with China AIDS Walk

The LGBT community in China is continually striving to get more understanding and support from society. With this event, the Tongxinyuan Qinyinghui partner up with the China AIDS Walk to challenge all LGBT people to think of what they can give to society.

The China AIDS Walk is the first large-scale initiative in Mainland China to invite citizens to take active part in fighting HIV/AIDS. This evening, 2 of the China AIDS Walk coordinators, Wei Xiaogang and Wei Tingting, talk about how their participation in the US-based project Aids Life Cycle inspired them to start a similar event in China.

After showing the documentary “On the Road”, which features a captivating and inspiring account of the 2010 Aids Life Cycle, they will talk about the China AIDS Walk and how it’s changing civil society in China.

Film is shown with Chinese & English subtitles.
Talks will be in Chinese.

【Aids Life Cycle】

AIDS/LifeCycle is the world’s most successful AIDS fundraiser. It is a fully supported, 7-day bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Participants use 1 year for fundraising – each participant who raises 3000 USD or more is eligible to participate in the bike ride which takes place every year during the first week of June.

In 2012, more than 2,200 bicyclists and 550 volunteer “roadies” completed their seven-day journey toward from San Francisco to Los Angeles as participants in AIDS/LifeCycle. Hailing from nearly every state and 11 countries, they have raised a record $12,600,000 for the HIV/AIDS services of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

【On the Road】

In the spring of 2010, 2 Chinese LGBT activists set off from Beijing to the glamorous city of Los Angeles, where they were invited to take part in a leadership development program of the LA Gay & Lesbian Center. It was the start of an incredible journey…
They met all the amazing people powering the programs of the Center, they learned how the LA Gay & Lesbian Center grew up to be the world’s largest LGBT organization, they encountered stars using their glitz for the good cause and they participated in a truly life-changing bicycle ride to end AIDS: the AIDS Life Cycle.
Their travels are captured in this documentary – watch, enjoy and be inspired!

【China AIDS Walk】

The China AIDS Walk project was launched by the Beijing Gender Health Education Institute. Driven by a collaborative network of different organizations, the China AIDS Walk raises awareness about HIV/AIDS and raises funds for social projects working on HIV/AIDS issues throughout its different project phases, including mobilization, participatory fundraising, training, promotion and walking on the Great Wall.

We believe that social progress is achieved not by a few people doing much, but by many people doing a little. Adopting the “Friends Ask Friends” (FAF) fundraising model, the China AIDS Walk engages the help of every participant to distribute HIV/AIDS related knowledge and promote the ideas behind the China AIDS Walk. The China AIDS Walk hopes to help people living with HIV/AIDS not only by raising funds, but also by eliminating discrimination and by promoting the idea that everyone can contribute to the public well-being.
