Hello

Just joined the ppk forum... I live in York. I love Yorkshire lots and lots but at times it's not the easiest place to be vegan! I was at the 1 in 12 the other week (my band were playing) but the kitchen was closed :( ... noooooooooo!

I've not met any PPKers yet, but hopefully that'll be rectified this year :)

You've met me!

I was mostly of the opinion up until 2005 that I was one of the few 'normal' vegans. Luckily that view got quickly reversed, as during 2006 I met 100+ through meet-ups and parties organised by people from a (then) popular vegan forum. This continued through 2007, before the forum's anonymous foreign owner started moderating / banning the majority of regular UK posters.

...from this.

This might sound mean-spirited, but if there was a vegan meet-up in Bath or Brizzle or wherever, I doubt I'd actually go. The PPK has a nice vibe, but that's largely because it's not preachy...I sort of feel that if I went to a vegan meet-up of people I didn't know, it would descend into a debate about whether or not honey-farming is morally corrupt, and the best way to weave lentils into tampons and I would spontaneously die just to make a point.


There is a Bristol vegan group, and you're so far wide of the mark it's funny. But then, if this is your expectation, maybe that's what you'd find...


agreed with Ruby Rose, the meet up I went to was full of really funny and interesting people - who just happened to be vegans. Apart from the basic 'how long you been a vegan' type ice breaker questions, loads of 'normal stuff' was chatted about - people from all walks of life. I didn't meet one lentil tampon weaving preachy militant vegan ;)

That explains why you bailed the other day, Gulliver! What a shame! I'm a regular human who isnt interested in arguing about honey. I've met enough PPKers by now to know they're not like that. Ah well!
