Queen guitarist and songwriter, Brian May, who often uses his platform to speak out about animal-rights, has announced he will be doing Veganuary.

The star shared a video of him holding a How To Go Vegan book on Instagram with the following message for his followers:

“Starting on the first of January I, this coming year I will be doing VEGANUARY. Which means I will eat only vegan food for that month.

“If any of you folks out there are hovering on the edge out there and want to join me too, I’d be delighted. We can mutually support each other! I figured this book is a good place to start.

“My reasons?

1) to lessen the suffering of animals.
2) To lessen the load on our groaning planet.
3) for my health.

And… as an animal campaigner, it has been bothering me for a while that I still eat animal-derived food, that has caused indignity and pain to a non-human animal.”

The celebrity said when Veganuary comes to end, he will ‘take a view’ on whether to continue being plant-based.
