Fabulously Vegan with Jasmin Singer

Hope for the Animals

The amazing and fabulous Jasmin Singer is a worldwide leading expert on veganism, the co-host of the -running Our Hen House podcast, a longtime contributor to VegNews magazine as well as the author and editor of numerous books. Hope and Jasmin had a ton of fun covering a lot of territory starting with reminiscing about being vegan in the 90s, Jasmin’s journey writing her memoir, and her evolution coming from the LGBTQ movement into the animal rights space and how that overlaps and connects. They talk the groundbreaking anthology that Jasmin recently edited about anti-racism in the animal rights movement, they discuss thin privilege and discrimination against larger bodied people and how that manifests in the vegan community, as well as the adventure of making her new home in upper state New York net zero. Resources:Website: https://jasminsinger.comBlog: Jasmin’s JargonPodcast: Our Hen House Books: The VegNews Guide to Being a Fabulous Vegan,Always Too Much and Never Enough: A Memoir Anthology: Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural TransformationEpisode 24: Fat Justice and Veganism with Andy TabarWhat We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat by Aubrey Gorden Encompass

E20: A Discussion with Jasmin Singer, Part 2: Animal Advocacy Activist and Editor of Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation

The Deal With Animals with Marika S. Bell

Episode 3 of Series 3: Equity and Social Justice in Animal Advocacy A discussion with Jasmin Singer, Editor of Encompass Essays Antiracism in Animal Advocacy: Igniting Cultural Transformation....We had a conversation about an issue that is important to all of us and yet both her and I being white, have mostly seen the privileged side of this. So there are moments that we have a difficult time putting into words our thoughts or even recognizing the white privilege that we hold. After the interview Jasmin contacted me with some of the same concerns I had already felt. Neither of us  being experts, Had we done Justice to the topic? Could we put this discussion out into the world? In the end we decided we should, because just as the book suggested, we were having the difficult conversation and trying to work out how we can make things better. And even if we don't get it right we are going to try and we're going to keep trying. So if nothing else, this is an excellent example of the kind of conversation that we all need to be having! Because we're not going to get it right the first time, and making the effort is important. Perhaps by sharing our effort we will encourage others to do the same.

At the age of twenty-four, Jasmin Singer turned to veganism after watching a film about factory farming. Learning about the horrors of the dairy and egg production led her to incorporate animal rights into her LGBTQ+ and feminist activism. Jasmin then began volunteering at PETA's headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, and began steering her career toward animal rights activism.As well as being a leading expert, Jasmin Singer is now a hugely visible presence within the vegan community. She is a coveted speaker on topics including radical body positivity, personal narrative as a means of social justice, and how to change the world for animals.

I was fortunate to feature on one of their episodes, I will link it down in the show notes.Jasmin’s incredible contribution to animal rights does not stop there. She is the former Senior Editor for VegNews Magazine and the longtime love columnist and celebrity interviewer. In 2020, Jasmin had the enviable job of interviewing actor Joaquin Phoenix, who had used his prominence to not only effectively veganize the menu at the Academy Awards, but also treat his acceptance speech as a way of sharing his concerns for animal rights issues. You may well have seen Jasmin appearing in various documentaries such as The Ghosts In Our Machine and Vegucated. She has also contributed to many anthologies such as Running Eating Thinking; Defiant Daughters; Voices for Animal Liberation; Queer & Trans Voices; and Circles of Compassion. As an actor, Jasmin starred in the film The Bra Mitzvah and has appeared in television commercials. She holds a BFA in Acting from Pace University, and is a certified holistic health counsellor.
