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. :)
