Walking for Hope

We still cannot believe the outpouring of support our #RPWalk4Hope received this year. Thanks to you we raised $36,213 to support the programming and services we provide to women in need at our shelter—an all time record! For #FlashbackFriday let's take a walk down memory lane to celebrate the participants who did #TheirWalkTheirWay in June to support Ruth's Place. 🏃‍♀️

Seldarine "Zelda" Brislin (pronouns: fae/faer or they/them) is a 29-year-old member of the VOAPA family. Faer passion for spreading the word and teaching others about the 2SLGBTQIA+ community drove them to compile a series of informational videos on various subjects about #Pride ranging from the Stonewall riots to the importance of respecting pronouns. An active participant in the local drag scene, they're always happy to help people learn about the origins of Pride! #HappyPrideMonth

Alexei Romanoff was born in Ukraine, fled with his family to America during World War II, and came of age as a gay man in New York during the 1950s. In 1958, he moved to Los Angeles.

In 1967, six weeks after violent police raids on four different gay bars in the community, Alexei helped organize a protest demonstration at one of those bars, the Black Cat, more than two years before the Stonewall riots of June 1969. On November 7, 2008, the Black Cat site was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.

Romanoff has marched in every Christopher Street West (Los Angeles) Pride Parade since the first one in 1970, and has twice been the recipient of LA Pride’s Founding Father award (in 2008 and 2014). Alexei continues to work as an activist for human rights today.

For the first time in the nation’s history, we celebrate #Juneteenth as a federal holiday. However, it is more than a celebration—it is a time for education and reflection. On June 19, 1865, the last enslaved Americans in the Confederate States were freed—more than two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued. Slavery was still legal in the United States until December 6, 1865, when ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution abolished chattel slavery nationwide. Juneteenth, historically known as Jubilee Day, Black Independence Day and Emancipation Day, originated in Texas and has been celebrated since 1866. #NeverForget

Meet Robert W. S. Coulter, Ph.D., MPH; Assistant Professor, Behavioral and Community Health Sciences; and Assistant Professor, Pediatrics at Pitt Public Health. Dr. Coulter is dedicated to making the world a safer place for LGBTQ+ youth.

As a public health researcher, his work broadly focuses on the health of sexual and gender minority (SGM; e.g., le***an, gay, bisexual, and transgender) youth and young adults. Through his research, @robert.ws.coulter aims to assess SGM health inequities, investigate the causes of such inequities, and evaluate programs that aim to reduce these inequities. His research has most recently led to an evaluative study on current LGBTQ+ training curricula available in schools with the goal of ultimately creating a new training curriculum that is more holistic and inclusive for LGBTQ+ youth. We salute you! #HappyPrideMonth #LoveIsLove
