In 2009, I dressed up as Jian Ghomeshi for Halloween. I wore the former CBC radio host’s classic attire: leather jacket, second-day stubble, headphones, and the broadcaster’s logo. Only one person guessed who I was. At the time, his arts and culture program Q was just two years old, and nowhere near the mammoth success it would become. But I was already in love with it, and like so many young women in media to come, I crushed on him professionally and personally.
