Pittsburgh – People around the world have pledged to go vegan for the new year—and now YouTuber Cammie Scott has teamed up with peta2, PETA’s youth division, for a cheeky new video to help fans “come out” as vegan to friends and family.

“I knew from an early age that I was gay, but telling people in my life was intimidating,” Scott explains in the video. “So how do you come out—as vegan?”

With the help of a few co-stars, she goes on to reassure viewers that showing parents how to veganize family favorites will help them adjust to the change and that explaining your decision to friends will make them feel included—and maybe inspired to join you.

“So be vegan and be proud,” Scott concludes. “You are making an empowering and compassionate choice. You’re helping animals, improving your health, and fighting climate change. Pretty cool.”

peta2—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that  going vegan saves more than 100 animals a year from daily suffering and a terrifying death, is more effective in combating climate change than switching from a standard car to a hybrid, and reduces your risk of suffering from heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer.

Scott is part of a long list of celebrities—including Emma Kenney, Sarah Jeffery, Noah Cyrus, Hayes Grier, Jordyn Jones, Kalel, Kesha, P!nk, Madelaine Petsch, Skylar Stecker, and many others—who have teamed up with peta2 or its affiliates to promote kindness to animals.

“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
