Hi, I'm Brian...I'm 35, and live in Metro Detroit.  I've been vegan since June of 2009, after not quite a year as a vegetarian.  I'm active in animal rights and veganism causes around here, as well as a few nonrelated ones.  I'm here to meet like-minded people, learn, network and socialize.  I do have a handful of vegan/veggie friends, but not enough.  I'm the only one in my family, save for one cousin.  Even though everyone's generally supportive of my choices, I am still tired of constantly being singled out for it, teased (although mostly with affection), and so forth.  So here I am, looking forward to contributing to a board full of people who get it, and where I think I'll fit in pretty easily.

Welcome Brian!!! So nice to meet you!!! I am fairly new here too!!! I agree, it is nice to find a place where people "get it"!!! My eldest son, his wife, and kids (two girls) are vegan, so I have that at least. I LOVE going to their get-togethers because I know it is safe to eat their food!!! The only problem is that we don't see each other too much, so it gets really lonely for me. I got my dog and cat to keep me company at least!!! Oh yeah, I think that it is really cool that you are active in animal rights and  vegan causes in your city notworthy.gif!!!  Keep up the good work!!!
