This week on Necromancy Radio I decided to mix things up a bit and discuss gothic lifestyle that pertains to diet and the subject of living vegan, with Nigerian/American Adaora Osimiri-Lewis aka Goth in the Raw. The 5’11 amazonian goddess is not only the creator of website Goth in the Raw, but is a wife, mother of 2, has multiple degrees in fashion, business and most recently, heath coaching. Adaora has walked the catwalks in NYC as a model, is an animal rights advocate, supporter of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation in conjunction with Illamasqua, magazine editor, previously an industrial singer for Razorblade Twins and most notably, a private raw food chef. Her recipes on the website Goth in the Raw are inspired by her passion for the macabre and darkness as an aesthetic – her Instagram is a work of art.
It seems a little of an oxymoron when people identify with the subculture in a vampiric way to the extent where Goths are not actually blood sucking vampires or even meat eaters, but can be raw foodies. The revolution of Veganism has been trending in recent years, however it definitely is not a fad by any means. If you’re serious about your health, the planet and animal cruelty, this is the podcast for you.
We also discuss her greatest influencers such as her grandfather, the Dalai Lama, racial discrimination as a black goth, religion and all kinds of stuff. We hope you enjoy this unique conversation and hope you find it inspiring as it is poignant, during a time in history where compassion and understanding is what is needed most to define ourselves as a community as well as secure our planet for the future.
