Hi my name is Yang Yang, I work as the Fixed Plant Manager for Rio Tinto at Gudai-Darri and I will be riding 1000km within the month of June in the beautiful Pilbara region of Western Australia to raise funds for Pride Foundation and Lifeline.

Join me in supporting a cause that has seen significant strides but still requires our unwavering support. From the removal of homosexuality from the Classification of Diseases by the World Health Organization in 1990 to the violent suppression faced by activists during the first Mardi Gras pride march in Sydney back in 1978, the journey towards equality has been marked by struggles and triumphs. Tasmanian decriminalisation in 1997 marked a significant legal milestone, yet it's sobering to acknowledge that a majority of Australians today lived through times when being gay was illegal. Even the Marriage Equality plebiscite of 2017, while successful, revealed a stark reality with 38.4% of Australians voting against it. Let's ride together towards a future where everyone can live and love freely, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

You can support this initiative in two ways:

  1.  I will be bringing my bike up to site, so please join me. You can ride 100km, 500km or 1000km – whatever you feel comfortable doing. You can also complete the kilometres at home while on break, it’s totally up to you.   Please contact me directly if you are interested.
  2.  If cycling is not your go to activity, you can also provide support by donating. Any donation is much appreciated.

Please feel free to follow us under PrideRide2024 Instagram account.  The account is new but we will provide regular updates on our progress as a team and invite special people to join our rides. https://www.instagram.com/prideride2024?igsh=dGliZnM3ejZidjh1&utm_source=qr

I look forward to sharing this journey with as many of you as possible.

Yang, you are an absolute legend doing this - such a great cause and 1,000kms in June is a huge achievement. It is easy to talk the talk but not many people actually walk the walk, like you are doing here - keep inspiring others because you are making a difference to not only causes like this also to friends and colleagues alike!
