vegans & body image: the series

Welcome to my biweekly series on vegans and body image. These are user-submitted profiles addressing the issue of body image and how that relates to their veganism. Do we feel pressure, internally or externally, to look or be a certain way because we carry the “vegan” label?

We’ll see profiles from folks of all shapes and sizes, some who feel great about themselves and some with past or present issues. Some of us feel our responsibility as vegan ambassadors is to fit society’s physical ideal, while others see that as part of the problem, not the solution, and that we should show the world how diverse we are.

Whatever your background, body type, or writing experience (I’m an editor!), I want to hear from you. Please, share your story. Find more information here, or email me at VegtasticVoyage@gmail.com.

Check out these personal stories (many more to come!):
