My Visit to Pride Center of New Jersey

Tonight, I showed my support at The Pride Center of New Jersey, which is a gay/lesbian/bisexual/straight/transgender equality organization. Not only did I meet some incredible folks, I got to see people I had met in the past too. You would be enlightened to know, that having been oppressed themselves at some point in their lives, they were open to learning and having extended discussions about the vegan lifestyle. It was an honor to be there with them, hearing their life stories, written manuscripts about love, oppression, etc. I plan on going hiking with some of them next week. I just want to say that for any of my local gay and/or straight friends, they are located in Monmouth County. There are several rooms and offices between what the workers use, participants use, an entertainment area (for stand-up comedy, karaoke, etc.), a lobby, library, and much more! They welcome people of all types, and you don’t have to be gay to fit in with them. It is a safe place for all, and I encourage those of you who are coming out, or just want to connect with people in the gay community, to pay a visit. Some events include refreshments, and there may be a nominal fee. It is always good to stand for other social justice movements… Some day, we will all understand that every living being matters whether we are humans or animals. As a straight man, I’m no different than gays. They just have other needs than I do regarding relationships. To make real changes, consider helping someone else’s social justice movement. You’ll see similarities that you might not have seen in the past. We all have the ability to feel desires, love, fear, pain, and so on.

About the author

I began this website as a way to showcase that going vegan is easy, cost-effective, delicious, and most importantly, fun. No animal has to suffer or die for a meal. Since the age of four, I have not eaten meat. I learned at a young age that the family puppy shared the same types of emotions as wild animals and farm animals. I never thought that it was okay to exploit them. Twelve years ago, I gave up cheese, not knowing the suffering through which cows had gone. I am dedicated to the vegan lifestyle, animal advocacy, and in furthering the social justice movements for all people, animals, and the planet. I am pleased to announce that since this blog began in 2014, there are many more vegan businesses from restaurants, a fully vegan shopping center, a school that only serves vegan food, and a vegan medical center. Although I have no affiliation with them, I feel that it is noteworthy to say that the movement is growing, and I hope to see the property status of animals one day change to acknowledge them as "persons," not things.
