Time Out New York Wants You To Date Gabby

Vanessa’s Team Pick:

Are you in love with Autostraddle’s very own Gabrielle Rivera? That’s a rhetorical question because duh. Gabby writes poetry and gives the best life advice and finds amazing photos of Beyoncé. She’s honest and kind and respectful. She’s smooth and soulful and perfect. Did I mention she is dapper as fuck? Basically Gabby is the best and I assume you all want to date her. Lucky for you, now you can! I mean, not that you couldn’t before…but this time it’s pretty official.

I am pleased to announce that Gabby is in Time Out New York’s January roundup of single women seeking women in NYC, and that means that not only do we get to hear her idea of a perfect date, but you actually have the opportunity to go on a date with her. I guess you have to live in New York for this to apply to you, but honestly if you wanted to fly in from a faraway destination I wouldn’t blame you. So what’s Gabby’s idea of a perfect date? Here’s what she told Time Out:

We’d ride bikes around Governors Island, flop down on the lawn for a picnic and grab some Blue Marble ice cream, then take the ferry back to the city and part ways to freshen up. We’d meet up later in Morningside Heights, eat at Toast and drink some craft beer. We’d walk it off along Broadway and if it was a Friday, head down to Hot Rabbit to dance our asses off. Finally we’d part ways and walk off tired and thinking about each other.

  1. No lie, shelooksgoodinatie.
    Her hair’s like Salt-n-Pepa meets SupaDupaFly.
    I don’t know why she’s single; she doesn’t have to try
    Cuz all the honeys want her with that twinkle in her eye.

    She wants to take you out for a tour-on-bike,
    But if you play your cards, could be a tour-on-dyke.
    Or maybe she’ll draw you like Titanic’s Jack and Rose.
    Before you know it, you’ll be takin’ off your clothes.

    Last name Rivera, first name Gabby:
    Her pics on AutoStraddle are not too shabby.
    Gabby likes to write and Gabby likes to draw
    Gabby’s the full package and knows how to work your bra.

    We went on a date, maybe once or twice.
    Walked through the city, shared our stories, gave advice.
    She’s pretty dope, and I don’t say that lightly.
    Be the lucky girl that she takes home nightly.
