No Filter: Laverne Cox and Trace Lysette Said “Its Time for the Twerkulator”

Hello one and all! This is No Filter, the place where I round up the best celesbian Instagram content for your eyes and your eyes only— what fun!

(I would also like to let you all know that we are still looking into why the embedded images aren’t working for some of you! Your plight is never far from our minds!)

I always hesitate at including sponcon here, but I have bravely chosen to do so for two reasons: one: hotel sponcon is my dream, so feel free to send that energy my way, and two: who else does dramatic hot girl shit like Gigi?

I literally did not know how much I liked “gender queer Marky Mark” as vibe until this very moment.

Filing this one under “Celebrities who have stolen my aesthetic” thank you very much!

Cannot believe we have waited so long to add “master pianist” to Trace’s many credits!

And then to discover Laverne was there for her birthday! A blessing!

Speaking of Laverne, she would like to welcome us to Pride 2021 and I? Feel welcomed.

Also on the welcoming committee, The Krieger/Harris household!

This video is incredibly cute and I love it, though I still cannot tell you what “PANTS” is about. They look… incredible???

They are still cute, but ALAS I still cannot be responsible for figuring out what “PANTS” the podcast is about.

Despite the fact that I love swimming in the ocean too much to make Janelle’s suit a practical purchase…. I am…. VERY tempted by it! Is losing your bikini top in the waves the hot girl summer energy I was looking for? (We are not speaking of Diddy, he knows what he did.)

Another iconic Gemini for the list, Happy Birthday Gabby!

Thank your for the song, and the reminder to include mental health conversations when we celebrate Pride!

The tongue emoji gets me every time, it is so filthy? Which, to be clear, I absolutely love.

Before you go! Did you like what you just read? We keep Autostraddle majority free-to-read, but it isn't free to create! And yet most readers don't support this indie queer site. Will you be one of the people who do? A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year and they literally keep us from closing. Will you join? Cancel anytime.

  1. Re embedded images not working for some people – I use firefox’s facebook container and allowing this site in the container fixed the images for me. Might not be everyone else’s problem, just my 2c
