Queer veggie potluck in Dolores Park on Friday! »
Rachel here, on the vegan Pride beat again. I’ve drawn a Venn Diagram for you so you can understand better what’s going on:
As you know (because I told you a few weeks ago!), there will be some hot vegan action at the San Francisco Pride Festival this weekend. What you might NOT have known is that you can start that action early by going to the Food Not Bombs vegetarian potluck on Friday afternoon, as a side of asparagus to the Transmarch’s seitan picatta. Did that even make sense?
Never mind. Here’s what they say about it:
"Join SF FNB for our annual tradition—the Chez Gay cafe and potluck at the Transmarch! We’ve been doing this for four years now and are super excited for it to be this time of year again! San Francisco Food Not Bomb will provide some food, be cooking veggies at the park, but PLEASE bring veg food to share.
All are welcome to share food and eat.
(As always?) bonus points awarded for:
*bringing food to share or chopped food to grill
*remembering your own utensil / plate
*dressing in costume—double points if it’s French
*wearing your “vintage” chez gay tuxedo t-shirt (if you want one I think we still have the screen to make some the morning of)
*volunteering to cook in the hot sun
If you would like to volunteer for prep work or cooking at the park, email!
We’re generally a chill bunch, but disrespect for queer, trans, genderqueer or gender variant folks will not be tolerated.
Friday, June 24 at 3 p.m.
They use rainbow colors in their blog posts! Just go!
Represent vegans by dancing your ass off at SF Pride! »
OMG guys, SF Pride weekend is almost here! And by almost I mean more than a month away!
It’s time to start planning because once again this there’s a group of veggie-persons who will be taking advantage of massive crowds of caring happy people to spread the vegan gospel. They’ve got buttons and everything! Last year they passed out over 17,000 vegetarian starter kits—that’s starter kits like whoa.

This year, they’re kicking it up a notch with a choreographed dance that they will be performing [I assume] during the parade. They’ve got a handy set of YouTube videos demonstrating the moves. It looks pretty much like an intense aerobics class to me but what better way to burn off some hella vegan calories than by pulling a booty flurry all down Market Street, right?
You don’t have to dance to help out, though dancing is clearly the coolest. You can also just walk or carry a sign or hand out stickers and flyers. To get involved, email and or/join the Facebook group. Here are more pictures from last year:
Bay Area Vegetarians are returning to SF Pride this year for the eighth time and they need YOU! Volunteers needed to leaflet, table, and look hot while passing out delicious veg food samples. It’s loads of fun and you get a cute-ass shirt out of it. Plus, it’s a great way to reach loads and loads of compassionate people who are in a great mood. YAY GAY! YAY VEG! YAY SAN FRANCISCO! YAY GAY VEG SAN FRANCISCO I LOVE THIS CITY!
