Soooo … how was your “Hug a Vegetarian” Day?!
Mine was pretty much the best ever—because I spent it with awesome Street Teamers who came out to our Los Angeles hugging event, and my super huggable coworkers Marta, Rachel S., Ryan, (not a) Nugget, and more! Check out the slideshow from our Los Angeles event:
We weren’t alone! Street Teamers and peta2 staffers in D.C., Chicago, and Toronto hugged it up to celebrate how positive and fun being vegetarian or vegan really is. Check out some of their pics:

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 .
