Dan Mathews
Dan Mathews was born and raised in Orange County, CA by a single mother who encouraged her boys to bring home stray animals. In high school, he was beaten up for being gay and credits those rough times with helping him develop the thick skin needed to be an animal activist. He spent two years in Italy working as a fashion model and bit-part actor before returning to the U.S. He began working at PETA as a receptionist and within a year was organizing protests. As PETA's Director of Campaigns, his job is to increase awareness of the rights of animals through high-profile events. He has been arrested for his activities more than twenty times. Through a unique combination of sex, humor, and glamour, he has turned animal rights into one of the hottest causes of the last two decades.
Alex Ebert
