Hello and welcome back to No Filter! This is where I round up the best gay content from IG and present it here, for you! What fun! What joy!

Yes, we will be getting more Gen Q, and look, maybe it’s because I write these columns, but I am more excited about bts images than the show itself??? Hm.

We have yet to hear if we are getting more AJLT, and being that I am stuck between the complicated place of “I need more of this immediately” and “no, please no,” I give you Cynthia with Miranda red hair!

A huuuuuuge congrats to Kirsten for three years cigarette free! Also for being adorable, but I am focused professional here.

Steeeeeamy lil photo shoot from King Princess and Quinn Wilson!!!

Javicia is entering the Reese Witherspoon Cinematic Universe! As ever, I am firmly pro romantic comedies and fully support this!

Heather Hogan: is this the sexiest thing i’ve ever seen? possibly! (but you have to leave the sound off so you don’t hear any men talking.)

I want this EXACT hair so bad oh my WORD!!!


As far as I am concerned these are my parents.

It’s actually hard to explain how important it is to me that Keke is doing this lip sync of one of the greatest commercials every made in this history of mankind???

WELL WELL WELL, Sarah Paulson will be playing Glennon in the upcoming TV series based on her memoir Untamed, so let’s get ready for that!

  1. But who will play Abby? There aren’t very many well-known masc-leaning, athletic, charismatic actors out there. I guess technically Gwendolyn Christie or Hannah Waddingham could do it, but I hope it’s some unknown soft-hearted butch’s big break. There are some fans on Glennon and Abby’s instas suggesting ScarJo (seemingly seriously) and I can’t think of worse miscasting except ScarJo in Ghost in the Shell
