FGV returning to London
Where was Fat Gay Vegan born?
Well, the human behind FGV was born in Queensland, Australia but FGV the concept came to life in London.
I was living in West London at the time I started this blog in 2010 and I went on to put a lot of effort into creating events for the vegan community. Remember my Hackney Downs Vegan Market? It turned the whole vegan thing upside down.
Before the market, I created and hosted London Vegan Beer Fest, London Vegan Drinks, and London Vegan Potluck. I enjoyed running events such as Bowling For Oceans, Skating For Oceans, and Vegan Day of the Dead supper clubs.
And that is just the tip of the iceberg lettuce.
My time in London was whittled down a few years back and the past few years have seen me spending a lot of time out of the UK capital, including time in Mexico City and Sheffield.
But now I am coming back! The original vegan grandpa of the plant-based scene is moving back to where it all began.
The first thing I have planned is to try to get a new vegan market off the ground. Click here to read all about Vegan Makers at Buck Street Market in Camden.
Also, I am getting involved with one of my favourite vegan brands on the planet. I will be helping legendary Temple of Seitan with promotion, helping them to take their irresistible fast food to the masses. You can follow Temple of Seitan on Instagram.
If you see me around London over the coming months, please say hello. I am really looking forward to being back in the thick of things.
