We only fuck vegans
We have been big fans of Melbourne based body-positive model & animal activist, Stefania Ferrario since we first featured her up here five years ago & in our very first hardcover book. Stefania exudes mesmerising confidence & unapologetically owns her sexuality, firmly standing in her right to take up space as a multi-faceted woman with important shit to say. This week, she hit the streets of Melbourne mid-winter with fellow activist Tash Peterso in gorgeous lingerie to raise awareness around agriculture practices that profit off of horrific animal exploitation. A protest I’m sure we can all agree, despite where we stand on the matter, would have been impossible to ignore.
Stefania describes her veganism journey & how she got to meet fellow activist Tash Peterso.
“This was such an interesting experience as people responded so differently compared to our other forms of activism. Although I think all forms of activism are incredibly important, I did have a lot of fun being in lingerie & handing out pamphlets & holding up signs. Our most recent lingerie protest also involved other activists doing outreach at the same time, they talked to the public about animal agriculture & informed them of the horrific standard industry practices. I think overall it was a very successful protest. Expect to see more!”
I became a fully committed vegan on the 1st January 2020 as my New Years resolution & have never looked back. The thought of consuming any cow derived breastmilk products now repulses me & I can’t stomach the thought of any animal flesh or secretions overall. It’s incredible how my smell, psyche & perspective has completely shifted. It’s like waking up from having been in a cult.
Early last year in 2020 my father, who is also a vegan, discovered an animal rights activist that was incredibly outspoken & passionate, he sent me an article on her, her name is Tash Peterson. I immediately fell in love with her work & found her so inspiring, she would storm restaurants, supermarkets & events telling people the truth about animal agriculture. She is met with so much vitriol for her work, yet she remains staunch & strong in her views, after all, she does have the truth on her side.
Last year I connected with her on social media in hopes of working with her on animal rights activism. About a month ago Tash arrived in Melbourne to stay with me, this gave me all the confidence I needed to step up my activism game. With Tash by my side, we called out restaurants & fast food chains that profit off of horrific animal exploitation.”
