On April 2nd, hundreds of New Yorkers gathered in the Meatpacking District, of all places, for the start of the 10th Annual Veggie Pride Parade. “We made it ten years; I don’t know how!” joked Pamela Rice, who produces the parade and post-parade exposition in Union Square.

While some onlookers laughed condescendingly at the participants, the vast majority laughed with them, remarking on the creative fruit and vegetable costumes and good energy that filled the streets of Greenwich Village. TheirTurn spoke to many people along the parade route to get their reaction:

    I’m sorry, but I’ve found that by and large, Vegans tend to be the most self-absorbed, egotistical, insufferable assholes on the planet. Eat a fucking steak and gain some humanity back.

      Seth, let’s take a look at this. You just suggested that people should be less humane, in order to get their humanity back..

      Got contradiction?

      Let me get this straight you are not vegan for unenvironmental reasons , unethical reasons or unhealthy reasons ?
      Ethical vegans are the most unselfish people I know
