Vegan Warriors


Small milestones can signify great success when it comes to animal rights. Jaylene Musgrave knows this, so is using her rock star friends to help in her fight for animal rights.

The Mudjimba local had noticed a lack of animal rights activities on the Sunshine Coast, so she formed Vegan Warriors: a group of vegans, who fight against animal cruelty.

If her years as personal assistant to rock Aussie gods Jimmy Barnes and the Divinyls taught Jaylene anything, it was that she could make a difference - especially with the help of her superstar friends - and perhaps improve awareness of vegans.

As she acknowledges: “People are a little bit scared of the whole vegan thing.”

Jaylene has loved animals her whole life, but it wasn't until she was eight that she stopped eating meat.

“Like most families, meat was on our table for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” she said.
...
“I knew I had to do something to help animals,” she said. “I thought I've got all these wonderful people that I know in the (music) industry, I may as well try and utilise them and see what I can do.

“Celebrity vegans are great ambassadors for animals because they promote animal rights issues whenever they can.

“I've always been involved in animal rights. When it comes to animal cruelty, there is no excuse.”
