WHAT IS THE PRIDE MONTH VEGAN CHALLENGE?
During the Pride Month Vegan Challenge, LGBTQIA+ people and our allies pledge to "Eat the Rainbow" for the month of June by going vegan for Pride month. Participants get daily advice and inspiration and can be matched with an LGBTQIA+ vegan mentor if they choose.
The Pride Month Vegan Challenge is a project of VINE Sanctuary. VINE is an LGBGTQ-led farmed animal sanctuary that works for social and environmental justice as well as for animal liberation.
We're sponsoring this challenge because we know how much truer (and queerer) we all felt after going vegan.
WHY GO VEGAN?
FOR YOUR HEALTH
FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
TO BE TRUE TO YOURSELF
Learn about the health benefits of a vegan diet from our friends at Animal Outlook.
Visit the Homophobia section of the Intersections page of our website to learn about the biodiversity of sexuality among nonhuman animals and some of the linkages we see between queer and animal liberation.
Being true to your heart's desire is much more important than conforming to socially constructed norms. Probably, you don't really want to kill animals or be responsible for their suffering in any way. Probably, you do want to be in better relationship to animals and to the wide, wild, wondrous larger-than-human world.
And maybe, just maybe, eating the rainbow will make you even more queer!
