Ruby Rose is one of PETA’s “Vegan Wonder Women” alongside Jenna Dewan Tatum and Maggie Q. It’s all part of a Sexiest Vegan Celebrity contest, and AfterEllen is thrilled that Ruby made the cut. The only downside? One of the contenders who apparently was a close runner-up but who did NOT make the cut is Kate McKinnon. Come on, PETA! Why no Kate? But we will take this win, too. Besides, Maggie Q has done some pretty badass things for animals.
As an aside, Ellen Page has been a winner of the contest in years past. Are you sensing a trend among lesbians going vegan? We are. In fact, we published a story not too long ago about where to meet lesbians, and one place on the list was at a vegan festival. It’s a thing. Going vegan is definitely a lesbian activity. Or should we say lifestyle 😉 ?
PETA applauded Rose for encouraging her Instagram followers to fight climate change by going vegan this past April, and the star has also suggested veganism as a way to fight back against President Trump. Last year she Tweeted that she isn’t technically vegan because of the whole leather-wearing thing, but hey. Lesbians do love their leather. And besides, she just may have had a change of heart, because she definitely only wears faux fur.
Fast forward to 2017 faux fur shopping, photo via Instagram.
Would you go vegan for climate change? For animals? For RUBY ROSE? Let us know in the comments, because we are about to embark on a little vegan journey of our own here at AfterEllen. Stay tuned.
