I have fallen in love.
This weekend has been a special time. It has helped me realise I don’t just like Glasgow, I love it.
The best vegan city in the UK welcomed me with open arms this weekend and it has been fabulous. Let me give you the rundown:
Friday night – I hosted a one-night Queer Vegan Disco special at The Flying Duck vegan bar and it was brilliant. More than 120 people crowded in as Josh played camp tunes and we handed out vegan sweets. It was beyond fun. Thank you to the incredible staff at the venue and all the party people.
Saturday and Sunday – Tim Barford of VegfestUK did it again. Tim and his team launched a Scottish version of their incredibly successful event at the SECC in Glasgow. Thousands and thousands of people flowed into the venue for what turned out to be the best vegan event I have attended in the UK. I gave a talk on how to start a vegan blog and people crowded around the door when they couldn’t get into the room. Thanks for the love and for making me feel valued.

All weekend – Glasgow has got vegan food on lock. It is by far the most superior city in the entire country when it comes to plant-based food. We consumed burritos, cheesecakes, alcoholic milkshakes, seitan burgers, pasta, salads, sautéed kale and so much more.
Glasgow is number one. I’m dreaming of my return as I drive south into the rain soaked hills and windswept terrain.
I’m going to plan on an extended stay in Glasgow next time I’m in the UK. Thanks, FGV.
