Queen guitarist Brian May is receiving an award for his animal-rights activism Tuesday, October 19. May, who has a PhD in astrophysics, is being recognized by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) at the London House of Lords. May is a lifelong protester against hunting, and his Save Me campaign advocates for Britain’s hunting regulations and the protection of wildlife. “These magnificent animals live, breathe, see, hear, and feel pleasure and pain like we do, but they do not speak our language, so in the world of humans, they have no voice,” May said.
