The Gay Vegans

Changing the Social Media World for The Gay Vegans

Keeping up with this blog hasn’t been easy.

Once I recomitted to writing it, my goal was to publish one post a week.

I haven’t been able to keep that up.

I’m still very interested in this blog, and will keep trying to publish posts that are worth your time to read.

This may not be one of them. This is more of a “what’s happening in our TGV world” post.

In the past couple of years I have decided to leave Facebook and Instagram, all of my accounts including personal, business, and blogs. I recently added back The Gay Vegans on Instagram after having a scare that someone else took over the name.

Now I want to leave Twitter. In the last two years we have lost thousands of followers there. More recently, I have seen a lot more negativity, I’ll even go as far as saying unkindness and even hatred.

I have also noticed almost zero interaction with vegan and LGBTQ communities.

There are probably other places for us to go, and connect.

I’ve posted on Twitter letting our followers there know, asking them to connect with us here.

Other than occasional posts on Reddit, here on our website is the only place to share blog posts.

Many thanks to all of you who continue to support this blog. We’re about 13 years in. Unbelievable.

Go vegan. Vote. Be kind.

    Wherever you do it, I hope you find a platform for longer thought pieces __where appropriate__. (Imagine this in all caps)

    They are valuable–this has become especially evident since 10/7 when I have found myself unfollowing/snoozing a lot of real world friends–even though I’m almost in complete agreement with them. The lack of opportunities for even “Yes and” (“yes but” is often disingenuous) does us all no good. I’ll keep reading wherever you go.
