No Filter: Due To a Technical Error This Post Contains Nine (9) Copies Of the Same Picture of Mercedes Mason

Editor’s Note from Riese: I didn’t get to this post to schedule it until long after Christina’s bedtime, at which point I noted that this post contained nine (9) pictures of Mercedes Mason, suggesting the same insta link was accidentally cut/pasted nine times, above nine different captions for nine different instagram people. Pretty soon Christina will wake up and fix it but until then, it’s kinda funny to just see nine pictures of Mercedes Mason flexing, I think.

Author’s Note from Christina: After waking up to a bunch of hilarious Slack messages from Riese and then bravely deciding to publish this #vulnerable moment that really showcases my imperfections, we have decided to leave the post largely as is. We will be replacing one (1) photo of Mercedes Mason with a picture of Leisha Hailey and her dog. Happy Wednesday to my community, I love you all.

Happy Wednesday my loves! This is No Filter, here’s how it works: I collect the best that queer celebrities have posted through out the week, I round them up here and you get to look at them! What a joy for us all!

I would like it be known that I am not spending my time in quar like this but I send my blessings upon Mercedes for doing this and for capturing it.

Similarly feeling blessed that Trace captured this for us, the people.

Do you remember on Top Model when Tyra would ask the girls to give her that “broken down doll look”? That is because it WORKS folks!

As ever, thank you Janet, for being you.

This is truly just a lovely photo, nothing else!

I love a wiry dog, look at it’s lil faceeee.

Gaby I WILL be texting you, even if you just leave me on read.

No notes!

She is beauty and she is grace!

Here is the thing, I am usually against hats? But now…I feel forced to reconsider?

This is a message I can get behind. A face I can get behind, also.

  1. “Due To a Technical Error This Post Contains Nine (9) Copies Of the Same Picture of Mercedes Mason”

    It’s not a bug. It’s a feature.

    • very much looking forward to the next installment of this new column where we get to see a babe flexing on repeat with as many captions as Christina can think of.

      who among us does not want to thank Janet at this point?

  2. I’m just trying to guess via the captions what photos would actually be in place of the last eight Mercedes Mason pics.
    Not being very successful but it’s a fun lil game all the same.

  3. this is hilarious, but one of the captions implies a dog! therefore, I support the idea of putting the actual pictures up when this is sorted. or maybe just the one of a dog.

  4. nine identical pictures of queer muscles is extremely my thing, did not realize this was on the table, can’t wait to do this week’s comment awards

    • Can’t wait to which queer muscle picture will get repeated in the Comment Awards!

  5. Quite enjoyed reading all the captions for the nine photos. And then two bonus pictures at the end!

  6. This is so funny I decided to leave a comment for the very first time. I love nine identical pictures of Mercedes flexing <3

    • Seconded! The way this has been handled is making me value my own oopsies from this week as opportunities for shared joy. Thanks for the unexpected gift, Christina! ☺️
