New York – PETA is going postal—literally. Twenty famous vegetarians appear on a limited-edition sheet of U.S. Postal Service–approved photo stamps out just in time for holiday cards. Joan Jett and Alan Cumming will unveil poster-size enlargements of their stamps at a midtown PETA party on Thursday:

Date:           Thursday, November 21
Time:           7 p.m.
Location:   Sheffield Sky Club, 322 W. 57th St., 57th Fl., New York City

Joan’s vegetarian activism landed her in a national controversy this week, when South Dakota ranchers objected to the rocker’s planned performance on their state’s float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This week, Joan jettisoned herself from the float, just in time to unveil her vegetarian icon stamp for PETA. Alan, who is in New York filming the CBS series The Good Wife, says, “I just don’t like meat. Rotten carcasses don’t feel good inside in my body.”

The limited-edition stamp sheet, which also features Paul McCartney, Russell Simmons, Ricky Martin, Sarah Silverman, Edie Falco, Mayim Bialik, Casey Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix, and many others, is available for purchase at PETA.org and can be previewed here.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
