New Our Hen House Series

Our Hen House launches The Gay Animal, a new series that explores connections between animal rights and gay rights.

Our Hen House, the multi-media clearinghouse covering animal rights and veganism, has launched a new video and blog series which will feature people who fight for both animal rights and gay rights. Titled The Gay Animal, co-founder of Our Hen House Jasmin Singer says that the program has “potential for awakening ourselves to others’ plights and fights.” Not only does she aim to reach other communities with the animal rights message, Singer hopes that “exploring the connections can give us deeper insight into the dangers inherent in the ‘othering’ mentality.” The first featured activist is Nathan Runkle, executive director and founder of Mercy for Animals.
