7 LGBTQ Vegans Who are Making a Difference

It's encouraging to see that the world is now gearing up to accept the LGBTQ community but sadly there is still considerable resistance towards it in society. It's not uncommon that an awful lot of LGBTQ’s still have to shout out loud to be heard by society. And being LGBTQ and vegan is even a tougher stance given the resistance of many societal groups against both these choices. But, guess what?
