  1. I was more up on the Sistah Vegan happenings awhile back (I think when you were working on the first book) when I was more active on a vegan/queerness/feminist blog I had but haven’t been very active reading/writing again until recently. This project is such an amazing thing to encounter as I get back into the swing of things! I’ve been searching for a way to connect the communities that I work in (mainly queerness, feminism, mental health.) I’m definitely going to share this project our way and also want to think on how else I can support this. Thank you so much for your voice and the work that you’re doing! I’ll let you know when everything gets re-posted and also think on how else I can help.

    In solidarity,
    Traci
