peta2, PETA’s youth division, is giving teens the opportunity to vote for their favorite animal-friendly stars in its sixth annual Libby Awards (“Libby” is for “liberation”), which honor animal-friendly people and products. Visitors to peta2.com can vote for their favorites in each category, and peta2 will choose the winners.
In the category of Top Animal-Friendly Celebrity, Glee star Lea Michele—who stood up for horses used to pull carriages in New York City—will face off against Jackass’s Steve-O, who protested outside the Edmonton Valley Zoo to call on zoo officials to allow Lucy (the ailing and lone elephant there) to retire to an elephant sanctuary; Victorious star Daniella Monet, who filmed an exclusive video for the peta2 Street Team promoting “Hug a Vegetarian” Day; and Cobra Starship’s Gabe Saporta, who fought to defend his title of peta2’s Sexiest Vegetarian on Twitter and Facebook, and who also starred in a peta2 anti-fur ad.
You can vote for Lea here. Voting ends on December 23, and the winners will be announced on January 17.
