I need to get this off my chest, and your site seems like the best place to do it. You see, a year ago I became smitten with a man — a babe, if you will — whose voice I heard talking new releases on The Takeaway’s Movie Date podcast last February. I later met him in person, and it turns out there’s more to this babe than his smooth, saucy voice. He’s handsome, sure, but he’s also a man of sweater vests (which you’d think would be standard apparel for any self-respecting babe of NPR, but they’re not). The object of my affection? Rafer Guzman.
When confessing your love for another man, it’s customary for straight men to finish by saying “I’m straight, though.” If you’re a rapper, you say, “No homo.” But not me. I may be straight now, but Rafer is exactly the type of man I’d totally go gay for.
I know you guys aren’t actively highlighting babes, but I hope you’ll take a look at mine, in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Ed. note: A very happy Valentine’s Day to Rafer Guzman and his future boyfriend. YES HOMO.
