LGBT Pride + Animal Rights = ♥

We love LGBT Pride Month! PETA has always received a tremendous amount of support from the gay community, which makes sense because people who have faced discrimination because of their sexual orientation also tend to be sympathetic to the plight of animals, who are abused simply for being different.

Perhaps it’s no surprise then that in a recent spotlight on the most LGBT-friendly college campuses, those schools known for their acceptance of oppressed people are the same schools that lead the nation in offering their students cruelty-free cuisine.

By teaching respect for animals, we can also nurture attitudes of compassion toward humans. In the words of a very wise man (aka Martin Luther King Jr.), “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” That is to say that no oppression, disrespect, or violence belongs in our world, in our schools, or on our plates.

Happy Pride, everybody!

    This works both ways for me! Just as much as I love meeting cruelty-free people in the LGBT community, it’s always great to meet accepting people in the animal rights community. :)

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
