Hi, the name is Neil. I live in Ornch, Ezzex. I've been a vegan on and off since 2001. I was inspired to commence this journey by the guys at Anticon records in California. I've since worked in the Treehouse vegan restaurant in Norwich, Pogo Cafe in Hackney (now Black Cat Cafe) and The Hornbeam in Walthamstow. It's a difficult journey, especially when shops choose not to stock vegan friendly products, or restaurants won't cater for your dietary requirements, but it's getting easier every day. We may be in the minority, but our numbers grow daily. With comedians such as Sara Pascoe and Simon Amstell and musician Thom Yorke amongst our numbers and a whole legion of international stars, such as Moby; Bryan Adams; Darren Aronofsky; Mayim Bialik; Ellen Degeneres and Portia di Rossi; Ellen Page, Alicia Silverstone, Woody Harrelson, Joaquin Phoenix and Jared Leto veganism has never been more popular. It is only together that our community will survive. I already know some of you, but can always know more. This is a big shout out to all those compassionate individuals in the locale that would like to meet to discuss everything to do with the lifestyle, or otherwise, share recipes and maybe meet up every now and again for something non-sentient to eat.
