Vegans come in all shapes and sizes, with varied interests, and accordingly, they have different online personas. Some share tons of pictures of their companion animals on Instagram. Some share pictures of their marvelous-looking meals.
We’ve analyzed a bunch of posts and found 12 types of vegans that seem to keep popping up in our Instagram feeds. Do any of them sound familiar to you?
Bring on the filters. It’s Grammy season.
1. Plant-Based Powerhouses
Spend a few minutes browsing the bevy of vegan fitness gurus out there, and you’ll never wonder where vegans “get their protein” from again.
Blue is suddenly my new favorite color.
I seem to have gotten distracted.
2. #MCM- and#WCW-Worthy Hotties
Face it, there are a ridiculous number of crushworthy vegans floating around on the Web, and they’re all out there just waiting to be followed.

4. The Crazy Cat Ladies
YOU GUYS A video posted by Danny Prater (@omgdannyp) on
Yes, dudes can be cat ladies, too, bro.
5. The #Foodporn Fluffers
6. Those Shouting, “S-A-N-C-T-U-A-R-Y!”
These vegans just love rescued animals, and who could blame them?
What a surreal experience to interact with these ladies (and this gentleman rescued from the cockfighting industry), who have lived their entire lives in battery cages so cramped they couldn’t even stretch a wing. That is until now. Now they have their forever homes, and get to live the rest of their lives in peace. #chickenadoptionday #friendsnotfood #tryvegan A photo posted by Amanda Slyter (@amandaslyter) on
7. The Animal Activists
The great thing about many vegans is that they use their voices, their bodies, and, most of all, their hearts. They speak up for animals, getting out there and fighting for what’s right.
#tbt I took this photo at a #bullfight #protest in #2012 in #Mexicocity 1200 people covered in blood stretched for blocks until they fell dead at the feet of #elangel at #monumentoalaindependencia #enlapieldeltoro #mexico #animalrights #animanaturalis #peta A photo posted by Matt Bruce (@bigcitybruce) on
8. The Fountains of Inspiration
How many words is a picture of words worth?
9. International Vegans
The vegan community wraps all the way around the world. Animal abuse never stops, and neither will those fighting it. Remember: There’s always a vegan awake somewhere.
