Cammie Scott is an animal rights powerhouse with a serious funny bone. This super-talented YouTuber joined peta2 to create a hilarious skit to show you how to come out … as vegan!
It’s one thing to be comfortable in your own skin, but it’s another to share an important part of your identity with the people closest to you. As a proudly femme lesbian, Cammie understands the struggle of telling your friends and family who you really are. Check out her helpful how-to guide to learn how to come out as vegan to friends, family members, and that special someone. ♥
1. Show Your Family How to Veganize All Their Favorites
One of the many great things about being vegan is that you don’t have to skimp on flavor when choosing to eat with compassion. From delicious vegan meats like the Beyond Burger to yummy vegan cheeses from brands like Follow Your Heart and Daiya, going vegan is easier (and tastier) than ever. So if you’re wondering how your family members will take your refusal to eat your mom’s famous apple pie, show her how to veganize her pie and all your family’s other favorite meals, too.
2. Your Friends Can Be a Great Support System
Remember the lyrics “I get by with a little help from my friends”? Your friends can be a huge support system when you go vegan. Plus, you can take them to all your new favorite restaurants and show them why being vegan is so freakin’ awesome.
There may occasionally be people in your life who aren’t excited about your decision to go vegan, but check out these helpful tips to help them come around. (Hint: Delish vegan sweets tend to quiet the naysayers.)
3. Letting That Special Someone Know You’re Vegan Can Bring You Closer
Even when you’re trying to impress your crush, you should never compromise your beliefs. By being vegan, you’re saving more than 100 animal lives each year and combatting deforestation, pollution, climate change, and animal abuse. In other words, you’re a powerhouse, and anyone who catches your eye would be lucky to have you.
So don’t be too “polite” to stick up for your beliefs. There’s no need to “McDonalds ‘n’ chill” (ewww). Just grab some delish vegan food with your special someone instead. ♥
Being Vegan Is What’s Up!
“Ditching meat and dairy is one of the best things you can do for your health, animals, and the environment.”
We couldn’t agree with Cammie more. Being vegan is one of the most compassionate, loving things you can do to protect the rights of sentient beings. Never be ashamed of your huge heart for all animals, and don’t be afraid to let your family and friends know just how awesome you are.
