A new video targets the LGBT community as vegans talk about coming out -- for animals.

A group of LGBT activists star in a new video from the non-profit group Our Hen House, talking about the similarities between coming out as queer and coming out as an animal rights activist. The diverse group use words like "lifestyle" and "social justice" to describe their decision to become vegans.

Our Hen House describes its mission as working to "effectively mainstream the movement to end the exploitation of animals," and to enable "artists, grassroots activists, academics, lawyers, students, business moguls, media darlings, etc., to create change for animals."

Provocative animal rights group PETA has also made the connection between LGBT rights and not eating meat. While the group is best known for their deliberately offensive ads and protests, they've also used queer celebrities like drag queen Sharon Needles and actress Jane Lynch to highlight their cause.

"In this new video from Our Hen House, a diverse group of activists from the LGBT world share stories of how they personally connected the dots and came out for animals, too," the group writes in the clip's description. "'Coming out for Animals' highlights personal stories of connections between gay rights and animal rights, all told while enjoying delicious vegan grub."
