Molly Cameron’s LGBTQ Advocacy Work in Cycling Industry and Sport GoFundMe

Molly Cameron is fundraising to offset the expenses of doing national advocacy work while launching a national organization for LGBTQ+ representation in the bicycling industry and sport and we’d like to share Molly’s efforts here at the Radavist. This organization needs funding immediately to continue doing this advocacy work and to launch the organization.

This initial round of fundraising will be applied directly to offsetting expenses already incurred:

– travel to interface in person with local individuals and regional orgs, business leaders, and communities to build relationships
– housing at events, summits, meetings and conferences
– on the ground travel expenses
– outreach to the business, sporting and advocacy communities
– work hours in meetings, connecting and interfacing with national and global businesses and organizations
– writing copy, editing, producing policy, mission statement, pledge/declaration and developing action items
– interfacing with advisors and our advisory board on consulting, advice and steering the organization
– compensating members of the LGBTQ+ community that are assisting the organization
– cost of the website hosting and email services
– media production and planning
– setting up business structure at state and federal level
– cost associated with setting up Non-Profit 501c3 status

Molly has been toiling behind the scenes doing LGBTQ+ advocacy within the bicycling industry and sport for the last 20 years and recognized that it is time the community has confidential, dignified representation within a national lobbying organization that works FOR our community on all aspects of cycling…

Let’s help Molly’s efforts reach the $20,000 goal. If you can, please donate at GoFundMe.

We Are Not Whole Until We Are All Whole

We have all been on rides that, at some point, require us to dig deep. But we still find a way to get that last bit of energy out of our bodies. We fight, we endure. And on the other side of these rides, we emerge stronger. We need to make the same commitment to anti-racism that we do to become stronger on the bike.

Years ago a housemate of mine came back from SXSW with a tale of this person who they met rolling around on a tall bike while playing the accordion.  He said, “I wish that kid from somewhere could be from LA.” Fast forward a year and Winn, the kid from somewhere, showed up on our doorstep. She had caught a ride back with some of my housemates on their way back from SXSW that year. So it had come true, the kid from somewhere had made it to LA.

For those of you who have been following along for a while, you may know that before all this bikepacking-cool-bike-stuff I used to build and ride freak bikes, in fact, up until recently a majority of my touring experience was done from the seat of a tall bike.  After college, I chance happened upon a warehouse full of freaks and bikes alike, it was the most beautiful place I had ever seen.  Winn had migrated to LA in search of the same place.
