Meet Our Newest Board Member!

In LGBTQ, SSH programs, street harassment | on 01.06.14 | by | Comments ( 0 )

I’m so excited to announce that Patrick Ryne McNeil has agreed to join the SSH board of directors!

I first met Patrick almost three years ago when I spoke to his class at George Washington University, where he was a master’s student in the same public policy/women’s studies program I went through a few years earlier. Soon after, he submitted a street harassment story to the SSH blog and decided to write his master’s thesis on the street harassment of gay and bisexual men, a groundbreaking topic.

Since then, he’s written for the SSH blog, been featured on the blog, and we’ve collaborated on events and focus groups. In addition to being a smart and compassionate person, I am excited he will bring so much knowledge about the street harassment of gay and bisexual men to the board and to SSH’s work.

Meet Patrick:

Patrick Ryne McNeil

A native of Pennsylvania, Patrick Ryne McNeil works in communications at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, where he writes on a range of social justice issues. After completing a bachelor’s degree in English and Communications with a minor in Sociology at Marymount University in Arlington, VA, Patrick went on to The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. for a master’s in Women’s Studies, where he wrote his thesis on the street harassment of gay and bisexual men. Patrick has written for the Huffington Post, Washington Blade, Feministe, Fem2.0, Role/Reboot, and the Stop Street Harassment blog, and was awarded SSH’s Safe Public Spaces Trailblazer award in 2013 for his street harassment-related work.

“I am beyond excited to start working with Stop Street Harassment in this more official role and to join a board with so many incredible activists. While I’ve helped in the past year with tweet chats, blog posts, and a focus group, joining the board has already sparked within me an even greater passion for organizing around this issue and affecting meaningful change.” ~ Patrick

Welcome, Patrick!
