Over the past week, I had an unforgettable time hitting the road with peta2’s very own Concert Tour Crew. In the next few weeks, peta2’s fearless team will be traveling the nation with the boys of Senses Fail, and they’ll be talking to thousands of people about why going vegan is the best and easiest way to help animals.

Check out these awesome pics from the road:

The tour team talks to Senses Fail fans before they head inside.

Tour Crew member Vivian talks to people in line to see Senses Fail at The Norva in Norfolk, Virginia.

We’re daring concertgoers to spend “60 Seconds in Hell” by stepping into “The Cage” and watching a short video about the reality of what animals endure on factory farms:

All Access with Senses Fail!

All access, with Senses Fail!

Touring with peta2 is a great experience. If I could pick my top five fave things about it, they would be:

  1. Talking to people who went vegan after meeting us at another show
  2. When people go vegan after talking to me
  3. Giving people free stuff at shows
  4. Being the first person ever to talk to a particular person about animal rights
  5. Giving showgoers yummy recipes

Life on the road RULES!

When we’re not at shows talking to people about animal rights, we’re enjoying the sweet tour life!  Tour stories are the best stories! One time on tour, we had a day off near Las Vegas, so we headed to Lake Mead. Let me just say that our day off included:

  • A party boat
  • Cliff jumping into the lake
  • Swimming
  • Driving a boat
  • Vegan Boca burgers on the grill

There I am, driving a boat on Lake Mead (right before we cooked up some Boca burgers!) on a “nonshow” day on tour.

Heroes! <3

Touring + eating the best vegan food on the planet + talking about animal rights every day = the greatest job ever, right?!

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. 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.

"It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. 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.
