Friends, I invite you to contribute a photo of yourself to LiveVegan of you holding a handwritten or printed sign (not photo-shopped, no ads or promotions of groups or organisations) stating:
“Vegan for ____ yrs or mths or weeks or days or hours. Go (or be) vegan! It’s easier than you think.”
About the photo submission: (Find gallery of photos here)
Please keep to the script, and of course it can be in languages other than English as long as the text means the same and it says “vegan” instead of vegetarian.
It doesn’t matter how long you have been vegan whether it be 3 hours or 30 years as long as we stay vegan 🙂 Remember that veganism is more than a diet. Vegans reject using animals for food (flesh, dairy, eggs, honey etc), clothing, entertainment or other reasons to the best of our ability. The photo can be as creative as you like or in black and white but please keep to the script of the sign (with or without emoticons). The actual sign must be held by you and must not be photo-shopped into the image. Also if I could request that you please not have any promotions of anything including slogans, or promotions of any groups or organisations on your clothes or in the background etc. If you wish to include vegan children, please feel free to do so with you or in a separate photo.
Please email the photo (and you can let me know your first name if you like so I can thank you in the post) with subject line “Being vegan is easy photo” to:
speciesismwillend (at) gmail (dot) com
and I will post it on the LiveVegan wall and in a separate photo gallery on LiveVegan as well.
Why submit a photo?
It’s important that the public realise that being vegan IS easier than they think it is. There’s so much disinformation and misinformation about veganism online and elsewhere and some of it (including telling the public that it’s “daunting” or “extreme” or “purist” or “hard” or optional) is promoted by large animal and “vegan” organisations. So it’s good that we state repeatedly the reality which is that being vegan is easy.
And if you’re not vegan, please go vegan. It really IS easier than you think and it will be one of the best decisions you make in your life 🙂 Here’s a good vegan resource.
Please note those who are providing their photos in good faith are stating they support abolitionist vegan principles.
Thanks in advance 🙂
