No Filter: Abby Wambach Coaches Fiancé Glennon Doyle Melton’s Kid To Victory

Welcome back to No Filter, a weekly collection of some of the finest in carefully-curated queer celebrity Instagram. This week in news you can use, Stella Maxwell moved into Kristen Stewart’s house, which means NSFW editor Carolyn is probably going to run into her at the coffeeshop all the damn time. We were blessed with a wealth of fantastic insta posts this week, so let’s get down to it.

Honestly what do you even do when Abby Wambach starts coaching your kid’s soccer team? It says here that everybody, everybody, everybody needs and deserves Abby Wambach, but that isn’t true; none of are pure enough to deserve this.

The only way to make an entrance

I want you to think back to the first time you realized you might be into women, and I want you to ask yourself: was Kristen Stewart there? Did she do this dance?

You ever just look at Danielle Brooks’ face and wonder how she’s real?

While Kristen Stewart is busy dancin’ up a storm and recruiting baby gays, her ex Annie Clark is busy hanging out with her ex Carrie Brownstein and Carrie’s dog.

In the meantime, Annie Clark is also busy breaking out of escape rooms, so maybe she’s just practicing for Erin‘s Lesbian Relationship Escape Room at A-Camp, who can say?

Yup, rolling with Lauren and Samira seems exactly as adorable as one would expect.

In my imagination, Torraine Futurum tickles the ivories just for a moment and without warning, Kristen Stewart appears and dances through the background of this photo.

Gabby Rivera spoke on this panel for Badass Women Writers and was an inspiring superhero as per ushe.

Evan Rachel Wood’s Hexxus impression is spot-on.

Join us next week, when Kristen Stewart Totinos her way up to all the celebrities we wish would come out already.

  1. Hahaha I watched that Kristen Stewart video on loop for like 5 minutes. It’s not far off from how we make an entrance to our fav lesbian club, if I’m honest. Every day that goes by I realise just *how* gay I am….

  2. I wouldn’t know where to start, but this week’s entire “No Filter” has left me smiling ear to ear.

    Thanks, Stef. You’re always looking out for us :)

  3. Stef you do the lords work in collating the best Instagrams and vapid fluff for us all. Honestly one of my favourite columns on AS and one I read every single week.

    Unrelated note. If you are a human with a spare 7ish mins, who wears clothes and you were born between 1980-2000, I’d be so grateful if you fill out my anonymous undergrad research survey about fashion. Link: Thanks a mill if you dooooooooo.

  4. Wait, is Glennon Doyle Mellon such a good soccer mom that she literally divorced her husband, came out, and started dating Abby Wambach so that her daughter would have literally the BEST coach?

    I approve.

  5. Carrie and Annie need to just get married already and be terrifying together, and take weird, cryptic pics with Miranda July occasionally

  6. KSTEW! *smiles bashfully*
    And YES – the best intro – “You’re going to want to see this video of Kristen Stewart dancing, trust me.” I trust you!!

  7. Perfect caption on Danielle Brooks, as I had that exact experience with that photo, then scrolled down and felt *seen*.
