Oakland at-large City Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan announced Thursday that she is engaged to her longtime girlfriend.
Kaplan made the announcement on her Facebook page on Harvey Milk Day, May 22. No wedding date was listed.
In her post, Kaplan praised her girlfriend, identified only as Pamela. Kaplan’s spokesman Jason Overman declined to provide Pamela’s last name, citing security concerns.
A quick search showed Kaplan’s fiancee is Pamela Rosin, owner of Awakening Presence Somatic Counseling in San Francisco’s Castro district.
“In 2012, I met my beloved – Pamela – and we’re excited to announce that we’ve gotten engaged,” Kaplan wrote. “I feel so blessed to have Pamela in my life. We both deeply value our love with each other and our work to improve the world around us. She has a beautiful heart, she makes me laugh – and I have to say: she gives great fashion advice.”
