Welcome back to No Filter, a weekly column about what Danielle Brooks is putting in her coffee. This week, everybody went to Pride and sprinkled glitter everywhere and then the whole cast of Orange Is The New Black went out for a drink together, apparently. Were you there?! I was at NYC Pride for a hot minute; it was really rainy and everybody caught colds. Let’s get to the important issues of the day!
First of all, Beyoncé is here to bless us with her presence. I know, I know, she isn’t queer, but this is very important because Beyoncé.
Lauren Morelli went right to the Claire’s at her local mall and picked up matching “Best Friends Forever” necklaces for herself and her gal pal, Samira Wiley.
Catch me and this lovely lady tonight on the @LogoTV #TrailblazerHonors on @LogoTV!! #LoveContinuesToWin! (Also, a big thanks to @makeupbydisco for hooking my face up last night, as usual! Very talented lady, go check her out! Jumpsuit by @novisnyc, and styled by @samspector. They always keep me looking fresh)!
Thusly empowered, Samira Wiley took to the streets and shared her excitement over legal galpaldom with Kelly Osbourne, apparently.
Then Samira and her OITNB crew appeared on the cover of Essence, looking awesome in orange – right in front of Laverne Cox’s Bust cover. Worth noting that all these gorgeous people are hanging out between Michelle Obama and Cookie fucking Lyon.
Not to be outdone, Danielle Brooks went to pride wearing the best shirt ever.
Laverne Cox was like, “That’s cool and all but if you need me, I’ll be hanging out with myself.”
And then Lea DeLaria assumed her rightful place in the universe, and all was well.
I guess if you were at Cubbyhole you could have had a drink with the cast of OITNB! Does Lori Petty have a Ween tattoo or what?
Hey, I went to this thing! The Autostraddle/Everyone Is Gay event at Bluestockings was really crowded and sweaty but really, really precious – just look at these cute faces!
Somer Bingham and her perfect wife Donna and their perfect baby Ella hung out at NY pride, just being casual best moms ever.
Finally, Nneka Onuorah answered the pressing question that’s been on everybody’s minds – what has Daniela Sea’s hair been up to these days?
Join us next week, when Somer and Donna’s baby takes Manhattan, waves her flag around, probably smiles and gurgles.
