As much as the word "veggie" annoys me when referring to someone who consumes a plant-based diet, I am all for the Veggie Pride Parade coming up on May 18 in NYC. They have been doing these in Paris for the past 7 years, but this will be the first of it's kind here in the US. There will be a parade, exhibitors, and even a wedding for a pea pod? I'm sure it's going to be an awesome day to bring attention to veganism, animal welfare, and our environment. I can't wait!
