No Filter: Hannah Gadsby and Jill Soloway Unite For Cuffing Season

Welcome back to No Filter, our once-weekly digest of queer celebrity social media. This week, our pal Cara Delevingne took her probably-girlfriend Ashley Benson to a Magic Mike show in Vegas and Radar made an entire article out of one picture. In New York, however, Cara accessorized with a pink stuffed monkey wrapped around her face. Listen, I don’t make the news, I just report it.

Additionally, Rosie O’Donnell is marrying a cop, which means maybe Rosie O’Donnell is a cop now? Her fiancée Elizabeth Rooney is 33 years old, making her 23 years younger than Rosie, which means strangers on the street usually think Elizabeth is Rosie’s 20-year-old daughter Chelsea. That sounds uncomfortable! A cursory glance through Ms. Rooney’s Instagram reveals that she’s really into horses and being a cop! She’s also a member of the NYPD Mounted Police. Welcome aboard, Elizabeth.

While we’re talking about newly very public relationships, apparently Jill Soloway and Hannah Gadsby are a thing! A source told Page Six that they are very private and not trying to make a big deal about their relationship, and it looks like they’re doing a great job of that so far.
I know I’m old because my first thought upon viewing this very attractive photo of model Selena Forrest with model Aqua Parios is “where can I buy this couch?”

I believe these two just lounge around in beautiful lighting and take Instagram photos of each other all day and I’m not at all mad at it.

This is the gayest picture in King Princess’ Instagram this week.

I believe I promised you that Stephanie Beatriz was returning to standing glamorously in front of walls and I did not lie to you.

I love it when my favorite queer people collaborate! Yea, Brittani Nichols is the tie that binds us all together.

And there she is now, our glorious leader.

Kehlani wanted to take this moment out of her momentous pregnancy to remind you she’s hot af. Duly noted.

Didddd you take ’em to the lake at wherever this is, forget to bring a jacket something something cos you wanted toooo?
I just like to imagine what it would be like to walk a red carpet with Janelle Monáe.

Join us next week for a sermon about the majesty of our Brittani Nichols.

  1. The real biggest thing that happened in queer social media this week is that Lea Delaria absolutely destroyed somebody I went to high school with in an instagram comment yesterday (she’s the_family_jewels_96). She always was clueless, sometimes life is worth living after all.


  2. what is cuffing season? don’t make me google it like a peasant, i want to know the glittery and superior AS definition delivered here in our beloved comments section, please <3<3<3

    • As far as I can tell it means it’s too cold out to date so you’re going to handcuff yourself to the closest available person so you have someone to snuggle with during the winter months?

      I dunno to me it invokes the whole ball and chain image and all of the problematic associations. But I’m old! I’m sure the young folx see it differently.

  3. Probs an unpopular opinion, but I’m not happy about Soloway/Gadsby at all, I deeply dislike Soloway.
