Gary Yourofsky is one of the most popular activists for animal rights. According to his own website, he has given 2,388 lectures in 178 schools, and more than 60,000 people have heard him speak.

But no speech is more popular than the one at the Georgia Tech. In the summer of 2010, Gary gave one of the most inspirational speeches on the topic of animal rights and veganism. His charismatic style makes him easy to love, even by non-vegans.

Gary has been part of PETA for many years, and his troubled behavior got him arrested 13 times. He has spent a total of 77 days in a Canadian prison for his activities.

“Be rational, be aware, be self-aware”. That is the message Gary tries to promote to people who wish to make the world a better place.

Gary asks you when was the last time you turned on the TV and saw a commercial about tofu, raspberries, mushrooms, or any other vegan product. No, television shows us commercials about meat in a manner “have some more meat, have some more chicken”.

Can Gary change the world? Not by himself. But if more people become aware, the world might turn out to be better place for living, not just for us.
