The Bronx Vegan is a platform created and curated by proud Bronxite, Alexis Montoya. Alexis started the platform as a way to share how she navigates veganism in her borough through recipes, reviews, and more. Through working with the beautiful revolutionary organization, Veggie Mijas, her platform transformed into a space that builds community and support for Bronxites and residents of communities like it.
The Bronx Vegan represents and supports intersectional veganism with emphasis on the reality of veganism as made possible to native Bronxites. The Bronx Veganism advocates for veganism that is affordable, accessible, inclusive, not organic, not 100% vegan, never poor-shaming, never fat-shaming, and always trying it’s best.
Alexis began her vegan journey in September 2017 after watching the documentary What the Health. Ever since, she’s been devoted to learning, growing in, and revolutionizing veganism for the better. As a fat-positive Puerto Rican and Peruvian woman from the Bronx, her goal is to create a vegan world that all could feel welcome and appreciated in.
