Welcome back to No Filter! This is the column where I find celesbian IG content for you and make it into a handy column! Let’s gooo!

Let’s start with this calming view, courtesy of Jessica Betts. This is lovely, and I don’t care how basic it is to take cloud photos outside of plane windows, clouds are sick as hell!

Laurie, you know what? I cannot believe it, it seems like just yesterday I was DM’ing your TikToks to my friend and saying “something seems gay here??”

If I did not live with a triple (!!!) Sag, I would still know it is Sag season because Janelle is steady on one!





(Okay, look, I personally would have changed the caption copy a little for each post, but what do I know, I am just a semi employed social media professional, not Lesbian Jesus!)


The way Gigi will always do the most…bless and keep her!

I read this caption and then immediately had to know Sara’s entire birth chart, because this gave me such immense fire sign vibes. Sun in Virgo, Moon in Gemini, Virgo Venus, and a Gemini Mars with a Libra Mercury! Not what I expected, and frankly SAD to see a chart I would be so compatible with on a relationship post. Ah well.

Look, these are cool, I am not IMMUNE to liking cool images of hot people!

Maybe I have watched too much Dr. Who to trust AI? But then again, they do look cool as hell!

IDK I am still conflicted but I still love all the images! The duality of me!

  1. I too am conflicted about all the AI images. They’re so cool but yeah, I’ve read and watched too much SF not to be cautious about AI. I’m also really not in favor of these social media fads that collect tons of free facial recognition data.

    • trained in present day AI, and yeah, what the social media companies are doing with it is BAD. But at this point they have already trained their algorithms (with the help of millions of users tagging each other), and they have the photos if ppl post them, and so I’m fairly confident using them for fun doens’t make the situation worse (it is already BAD). US Customs and Border (which constitutionally should be diplomatic, not carceral but here we are, thanks GW for making that worse) is already using facial recognition for international flights.
