My name is Sarah E. Brown, and I believe that queer food is vegan food, and vice versa.
As a plant-source only site, Queer Vegan Food posts only recipes that don’t include animal products of any kind. You will also find truly queer recipes here–like chocolate-covered kelp noodles, for instance–in an effort to expand the vegan culinary world beyond vegan cuisine which imitates the non-vegan food world (vegan ice cream, hot dogs, hamburgers, fake meat, mac n’ cheese, etc.) While this site will feature some recipes that fit the above description, its primary focus is, simply put, on the weird vegan recipes you’d likely not see on other blogs.
Additionally, I believe that people of all sexual orientations can benefit from adopting a diet that prevents cruelty towards animals. A vegan diet helps improve personal health and the health of the planet. Articles on this site are written with the goal of promoting freedom and joy for all human- and non-human beings. This blog welcomes diverse viewpoints and opinions expressed in a respectful, sincere way.
I am the author of The Queer Vegan Food Cookbook, an impressive series of delicious, unusual recipes with 100% of proceeds going to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.
I am one of the 21 women with an essay published in Carol J. Adams’ book Defiant Daughers: 21 Women On Art, Activism, Animals and The Sexual Politics of Meat, published in March 2013.
I am a Vegansaurus correspondent, and contribute regularly to vegan publications. I have written for Curve Magazine and worked with raw foodist/vegan medical doctor Gabriel Cousens, M.D. at The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center in Arizona.
