SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, April 24, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A Utah vegan has been named one of the top 20 finalists in PETA’s “Sexiest Vegan Next Door” contest.
Chancellor Rose Partington “works in an emergency veterinary clinic and is also a trans model who went vegan nearly seven years ago for ethical reasons,” a statement from PETA says. “He was inspired to do so by a philosophy course that covered Peter Singer as well as because of his Jewish heritage.
“As a grandson of a Holocaust survivor, Chancellor says in his statement, ‘I feel deeply connected to animals who face the same types of horrific treatment endured by my ancestors.’
“When he’s not advocating in behalf of abused animals, he spends time exercising and exploring the outdoors with his two (vegan) dogs,” PETA’s statement says.
Hundreds of people across the country entered, PETA says. With the field narrowed to finalists, visitors to PETA.org are asked to help select the two winners, who each will win a Hawaiian vacation from Humane Travel.
“Chancellor Rose Partington has dedicated his life to advocating for justice for all living, feeling beings,” PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a prepared statement. ” “All the finalists in PETA’s Sexiest Vegan Next Door contest prove that there’s nothing sexier than making the world a kinder place.”
