I've likely met you already. I've likely shaken hands with you and shared a smile with you. So it may come as a shock to learn that I'm both vegan and polyamorous. Or, alternatively, you may know nothing about either lifestyle. Either way, neither veganism nor polyamory (ethical non-monogamy) are common lifestyle choices and both are burdened by negative stereotypes. I can't speak on the behalf of either community, but let's share a reasoned conversation. I'm offering to share my story -- my reasons and experiences -- with you. I'll help demystify what it means to be vegan or polyamorous.
