Happy OHH #ThrowbackThursday! Last week we started to take advantage of Thursdays to bring some of our favorite pieces — of our over two-thousand original articles! — back to light. Today, I’m excited to (re-)share with you the amazing Honey LaBronx‘s cooking show — from the episode shot two years ago in which Mariann and I were guests! This seemed like a perfect time to post this again, because of two very important reasons: 1. Honey LaBronx is currently actively organizing a “Veganize My Town” campaign in NYC in which teams are being put together to get more vegan items on menus throughout the city (this is replicable, non-New-Yorkers!); and 2. This week and next are the final two episodes of this season’s RuPaul’s Drag Race! So what better moment to highlight our very favorite ethical drag queen? I am so into this post and this video. I sincerely hope you watch it. (In other news — LOOK AT MY HAIR!) xo

We adore vegan drag queen Honey LaBronx, who inspired and entertained us recently on our podcast. In addition to being an up and coming star, Honey is a tireless activist for so many who need her — our! — attention, including (of course) animals, and the LGBT community. When Honey invited Mariann and me to be guests on her popular web cooking show, we plotzed. Not only did that mean we’d get to hang with Honey for an entire afternoon, but, I knew that the precious time together would give all of us the opportunity to further our bond, which is deeply rooted in our mutual devotion to the things in life that matter: animal rights, Bette Midler, spontaneously bursting into showtunes, and kale. These are the reasons I am alive.
We recorded our Kale Salad episode the day before leaving for our cross-country drive. The afternoon of the shoot, we set aside our pre-trip logistics-related headaches, and happily leapt into what was perhaps the most fun we have ever had recording anything. It’s a good thing there was mascara nearby, because — without giving too much away — let’s just say that Mariann, Honey, and I all had to reapply our lashes more than twice. Gut-wrenching laughter does that to a girl. Do not miss this episode of The Vegan Drag Queen, featuring yours truly, my better half, Mariann Sullivan, the insanely talented Honey LaBronx, and our very special massaged Kale Salad. As a bonus, catch the outtakes, too. Neither video is for the delicate sensibility, nor the delicate appetite. You have been warned…
Still alive? Here are some of the outtakes.
And here’s a moment for the herstory books:
