On May 18, 2008 the first veggie pride parade in America was held in Greenwich Village, New York City. I was very excited to have been able to be a part of this day. I have never marched in a parade in New York City and this was a wonderful experience. Some people were dressed in costumes such as banana's, peppers, pea pod, and a pig to name a few. Various signs showing support for the vegetarian, vegan, and going green lifestyle where soaring for all eyes to see. One guy was ringing a bell from his window as we walked by. We marched through the streets and onlookers were taking pictures and smiling. What a feeling actually walking in the street as traffic had to be diverted or wait for us to pass by... It really was an amazing feeling.. The march ended at Washington Square park where there were various booths and a performance by the Cheryl Hill band. Even when it started raining the pride in this day could not be dampened. Below are some pictures of the the first veggie pride parade..
Thank you for coming to my blog and I hope to see you again soon.
While I was on the internet I came across the vegan society web site and a hospital catering book that they made.. I looked at it and it is interesting. It has information on what vegan is, why people become vegan, vegan foods, and some recipes. I thought it would be interesting to share. I am also posting another website that has useful information on being vegan, substitutes, etc.

If you are new to veganism and want to know how to begin please go to my very first post, in November of 07. In my first few posts I give ideas on how I started. I have written quite a few posts since then so I thought it may be a good idea for me to write this in the side bar for anyone who may want to inquire about that information.

My name is Gemma, (AKA Gnewvegan). I am a vegan who wants to share what I learn to help others who are also becoming vegan. This transition has been a wonderful journey. I developed a love for cooking in the past few years. And being vegan has expanded not only my world of cooking but living.
