Between 13th-25th August Paeton and their son Callum will cycle from Lands’ End to John O’Groats (the most southern, to the most northern point in the UK).
Initially, Paeton decided to take on this challenge as a celebration of their inner journey to wholeness (you can read more about Paeton’s story in the Tour de Trans blog). After some thought, it became clear that this could become so much more. And so, the Tour de Trans was born!
The Tour de Trans has three main aims:
- Raise awareness of issues that transgender people face
- Start positive conversations about gender identity
- Raise money for Chrysalis (a small charity supporting trans, non-binary, and questioning people)
All members of the LGBT+ community, their friends, families, and allies are welcomed and encouraged to take part in the Tour de Trans! To find out how, visit our pRide Along page.
As our riders cycle #AcrossBritainAcrossGenders, they will be stopping at a several key locations to meet with local LGBTQIA+ organisations to discuss issues that trans, non-binary, and gender-diverse people face.
