Lea Michele (PETA)

Lea Michele lends celebrity status to PETA cause.

Lea Michele is kicking off the new year with a "horse" voice. The talented star, who plays Rachel Berry on Fox's smash hit Glee, is the latest celebrity to stand up for animal rights by joining forces with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, better known as PETA.

The "Glee" star's PETA campaign is part of the group's ongoing protest against the carriage horse trade. Lea is set to appear in a series of posters and videos that declare "Horses don't belong in NYC traffic." Full details, including photos and video clips, are available on PETA's official website.
