I did not previously know about the connection between food history and its link to feminist and lesbian movements. I was unaware of the fact that there was such a strong link between vegan/vegetarianism and lesbian identity that stemmed from the time that the comic was published. However, now that I think about it it makes sense that feminist, lesbian and environmental movements developed in tandem in relation to food as they did. Part of the activism surrounding vegan/vegetarianism was/is linked to feminist and equity values as it is usually women who are most affected by environmental externalities and therefore might be more inclined to want to make more environmentally conscientious decisions when it comes to the food that they consume.
