New member Hey all. It's nice to be among you. I've been vegan for almost a month now, after being educated through videos on Youtube by many animal protection organisms. I started doing meatless Mondays, but I was beginning to feel bad whenever I ate meat or animal products. I felt disgusted, wrong. The feeling I get today is that I don't want to use animals - unless it's "hugging use". I'm a Brazilian, but I live in Paris. I'd love to go out and meet new members. I also like to cook and it's awesome to learn about vegan cuisine. Post Date: 02/26/16, Replies: 2 02/26/16 2
Vegans in Gauteng, South Africa Hi everybody, I would like to meet more vegans and vegetarians in South Africa, especially in Johannesburg, and socialize more and more with vegans (and less and less with meat-eaters). I am a bit alone in my vegan lifestyle as I only have one or two vegetarian friends and all the rest are carnists who like driving me bananas. ;( If you live in Gauteng, especially Johannesburg, please let me know.

It's nice to be vegetarian! Hello, My name is Michelle. I love cooking very much. I'am vegetarian for three years. I have a lot of respect for animals and nature. I have a small biodynamic garden with a pond, a spiral of herbs and flowers. Here are more bees, butterflies and other animals such as frogs and toads and many types of birds. This vegetarian forum is very nice! Post Date: 02/12/16, Replies: 11 02/12/16 11
Hi there :) Almost a year ago was when I first started contemplating whether or not I should go vegetarian, and after watching many YouTube videos I knew that I could no longer live with myself, knowing the truth behind our factory farming and even free-range/organic industries. The reason I went veg was for the animals, the poor creatures who suffer constantly for our greed and selfishness. For school, we were given the task to come up with a persuasive speech for a well-known issue that our world faces today. I thought that this was my golden opportunity to educate my class and teachers on what a factory farm is and how we gain the meat, dairy and eggs that we feed on globally. I deliver this speech in a week and I am feeling pretty confident about the effect it will have on nearly everyone in the class. Its goes for roughly 15 minutes, with short clips and pictures of not even the worse that commences in factory farms. And after learning even more about the dairy and egg industry, I would seriously LOVE to go vegan, however my parents hardly support my decision to become a vegetarian, they even make me eat fish sometimes because my mum refuses to buy me veggie alternatives :( I guess the reason I'm writing this is to reach out to those who may feel the same way and who may be going through the same thing- wanting to go vegan but not able to due to the family situation. I would really love a veggie/vegan friend for support :) thanks, elaine383. Post Date: 02/04/16, Replies: 3 02/04/16 3
Colorado animal activists? :D Im kind of in desperate need of animal activists in Colorado. I went vegan like 4 months ago and i don't know any ethical vegans whatsoever. I joined some groups but the kind of activism they do is simply hold up signs and stuff. I want more straight to the point and blunt activists but its hard when you know like 0 vegans. Non vegans are also welcome, but i am a preachy vegan. So be warned. :D Im also sprry if i posted this in the wrong place, i just joined. But this site seems kind of laid back.

Vegans needed for a student dissertation!! Hello, We are two undergraduate students studying Psychology at the University of Edinburgh. For our final dissertation topic, we are studying the association between personality and dietary choices, specifically the paleo diet, the Atkin’s diet, and gluten-free or vegan diets. The study is in the form of an online survey. Firstly, you will be asked a few questions about their diet - why you follow it, and you commitment to it. After, you will complete a personality questionnaire. The study typically takes 20 minutes. Participation in the study is voluntary but participants will be entered into a draw with the chance to win one of two £20 amazon gift vouchers. We were wondering if you could please take this survey! Our study is being supervised by Alex Weiss of the University of Edinburgh and the survey has been approved by the Psychology Research Ethics Committee. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected] and we would be glad to help. Otherwise you may wish to email our supervisor at [email protected] Here is the link!

Candide woman who wants change everything Hi all ! This is my first post in this forum, but I sincerely hope not the last. I'm Bénédicte, I'm French and I try to make a transition to vegan after years of ignorance. At first, I was just curious about being slim, then being healthy. So I was curious and read a lot of blogs, watched a lot of youtube videos. I like animals, of course, but I like humans too (at least most of them). And then, I saw documentary about GMO and more specifically about Monsanto. And I am so in shock about what happens to farmers that don't want to be a part of it, and are forced to, I'm even more feeling bad to see HOW MANY products are actually more or less related to Monsanto (even Apple and Microsoft). I feel a bit scared and panicked, because I want to do something, but feel so lonely facing those giants. Am I the only one ? Is there anywhere I can go ? Somehting I can do ? I am not extreme in my words and thoughts, because I'm conscious that we cannot radically change the world in one year (and I definitely need to use microsoft for my work). So, what is it about ? I sincerely hope to meet great people over here and share loads of strategies. Sorry for the long post, I was desperate ! See you all soon :) :) Post Date: 11/13/15, Replies: 0 11/13/15 0

New Member Hi, my name is Emily and I am currently looking to transition into veganism. I have tried in the past and made it a year being strictly vegan. However, I keep going back and forth with it and am having trouble sticking with it. I really want to stick with veganism but I don't know anyone who is vegan so it's difficult.

Just saying Hi! Hi, I’m Steve, been a working my way up to being a vegan for 35 years, finally stopped eating and using animal products last year. First, mainly for health reasons, then for animal rights and environmentalism. Have become so enthusiastic that I created a website,, to become throughly involved in the “movement”, see it as part of my involvement with Buddhism. Was shocked by the far reaching and horrible effect the non-vegan food industry has on our planet. Post Date: 09/20/15, Replies: 1 09/20/15 1
