Posted March 30, 2012 by Ryan Huling

We teased about it last week, and now we’re ready to announce an exciting new project coming soon to college campuses nationwide.

Starting this fall, we will be launching the world’s first factory-farming experience to put people in animals’ shoes. Called “peta2’s Glass Walls Exhibit,” it consists of an enormous 20-by-30-foot inflatable tent, inside of which students will be put in the position of animals in the meat industry by sitting in life-size gestation crates, and where they can watch a new high-definition, immersive version of PETA’s powerful “Glass Walls” exposé.

Upon exiting the experience, students will walk away with free literature, peta2 stickers, and vegan food samples to help start them on a more compassionate track.

This project is still under construction, but here is a very early sketch to give you an idea of what to expect:

Get pumped!

    Wow I’d love for you guys to visit my school. I’d do anything (except do anything cruel to any living creature), even though I’m still in middle school…. Well, it IS Jeffesary to educate these teens who are clueless to what’s in their food….

    This is amazing. I tried to put together something like this, albeit way more rudimentary, for Earth Day when I was in high school so people could feel what it was like to be in one of those cages/crates, but just couldn’t build it.

    This is an excellent idea, guys.

I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
