Another week, another set of viable, naïve and brave candidates.
We almost had no prospects for this edition of The Blindest Date — the non-heteronormative road is a tough path to travel. Many are unwilling to be profiled and exposed to the will of the people. The process is the same as before: Read the new profiles, go to the scene blog and vote! The two highest scorers will take some actual scene money — and each other — out for a spin. And that ain’t Monopoly bills we’re talking about.
If the YCC election drama made you feel empty and besmirched, then vote for one of these four young lads and make your voice heard. Trust us, it will make you a better person, and judging by our not-so-blind story from last week, it will make our contenders feel … loved.
