Alex Estrada of Silver Snakes sat down with us for an exclusive performance of the band’s song “New Light,” and while our cameras were rolling, he let us in on one of the most important days of his life—the day he was introduced to peta2. Here’s how it went down: He was at the Take Action Tour, met our tour crew, learned some shocking facts about factory farming, went veg, and never looked back. Pretty cool story, right?!
Check out our exclusive video with Alex to learn all about his journey to veganism through music:
Hello! My name is Nina, and I am a musician-in-training, and I play 7 instruments. I am a liberal, an LGBT activist, avid reader, composer, singer, and poi spinner. I am vegan, and a strong supporter of animal rights.
I have always lived in Los Angeles but my family and I went to Mexico for my parents wedding. So we came back to LA. I don't like LA but were here already what can I do unless I move out and find my own housing. I have always liked animals and it was til I was like about 14 when I learned about tests they do on animals and I began to explore animal cruelty because I was interested it in it. I have watched videos that just broke my heart so that's why today I'm doing all I can to not buy anything that has harmed an animal and I'm vegetarian .
