FYI: THE MAGAZINE ASKED FOR DONATIONS (WHATEVER YOU CAN AFFORD) IF YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD IT, BUT IT LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN STILL ACCESS IT, EVEN IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO DONATE.

The editors of the magazine describe this issues as the following:

In an effort to become more inclusive of the whole vegan community, the magazine is focusing on the diversity within the movement. Hence, Issue six covers the intersection of veganism with forms of oppression such as racism and homophobia, as well as other relatively controversial topics surrounding a plant-based lifestyle.

Highlights include interviews with Breeze Harper and Jasmin Singer, articles from Dan Hanley and Leigh-Chantelle Koch, and recipes from Miss Savvy, Lindsay S. Nixon, Miriam Sorrell, and more.
