Simpsons guy helps save Benjy the gay bull!

Simpsons guy helps save Benjy the gay bull!

Well my heart beamed out a giant rainbow like a little care bear when I read this story. Benjy is a bull who likes bulls. And sadly, Farmer Joe don't want none unless you gunna knock up some cows hun. So poor Benjy was going to get slaughtered. Killed for being gay. That's rough.

BUT Gay UK magazine and Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) started a campaign to save Benjy from slaughter and give him a safe and happy life at Hillside Animal Sanctuary. You can check out their Crowdfunding campaign here.

Sam Simon, Simpsons co-creator, who you might remember from previous awesomeness such as buying zoos and freeing all the animals and saving hundreds of chinchillas from a fur farm, heard about Benjy and jumped at the chance to help! Simon put up the funds needed to give Benjy a home for life :)


A long-time vegan, Simon said he was glad that Benjy's future was now "a sanctuary rather than a sandwich". Wouldn't it be great if all animals got to look forward to a life of freedom and happiness, rather than being someone's sandwich. But for most bulls, (gay, straight or otherwise), that's sadly not the case. They are born for one reason and one reason only -- their meat.

The good news is, no Benjy's have to die for your sandwich if you simply make the choice to have a no-bull sandwich today, and every other day. To get you started here's a tonne of delicious meat-free sandwich recipes :)
