No Filter: Gabby Rivera Joins The A-List

Welcome back to No Filter, in which we dissect the week in celebrity Instagram. This week, I’ve been very busy cataloging all of Kristen Stewart’s recent outfit choices in an effort to unlock the subliminal messages she’s been sending out into the world. Some other (more famous) people have been much more productive. Let’s get to it.

There are dozens of amazing photos of Brittani Nichols looking sharp at various screenings of Suicide Kale to choose from, but I chose this one because it was in New York and I’d like to encourage her to come here more often.


This is as gay as a DJ booth can possibly be. We have reached peak gay. The other gay DJs can go home.

What if you went on a rollercoaster with Ellen Page? What would that be like?

How about this picture of former Autostraddle writer and current dream person Gabrielle Korn eating this taco loco? For the uninitiated, it’s a hard taco inside a soft taco with like, beans or guac or cheese or something in the middle, it’s a whole thing. Also, the rules of New York City clearly state that it can only be consumed in the dead of night after an evening of debauchery. Anyway, hey Gabrielle, you look pretty.

What if I only post Autostraddle writers past and present named Gabrielle today? Here’s famous author Gabby Rivera and one of her fans.
If you want Ruby Rose to fall in love with you, you should get her sardines.

So much of Jiz Lee’s feed right now is posts encouraging California residents to vote no on Prop 60, and if you live in California you should vote no on Prop 60! Also this is a great post.

Here’s St Vincent two years ago, probably wishing this flower would eventually turn into her current girlfriend Kristen Stewart. I begin each day reading about Kristen Stewart and Annie Clark’s antics. Recently, they bought dog food. Dreams do come true!
Someone last week asked if we could include Ria Mae in this week’s No Filter and I’m a people pleaser so I’m just gonna leave this here.
Are you fucking kidding me right now?

Join us next week, when for all we know Gabby Rivera will be hanging with Gwyneth Paltrow or whatever.

  1. Aww, Gabby.

    Carrie Brownstein gives me such mixed feelings. Such a big part of my formative years, yet in print and in interviews she is INSUFFERABLE. (Also can you be good buds with a renowned bad person (Fred) without being suspect yourself? Be careful Abbi.)

    • Used to live in Portland, and my 15 year old daughter was obsessed with Carrie, who was always super kind to her when we accidentally ran into her, and even gave hugs! So, I am an 100% endorser of Ms. Brownstein!

  2. Hngh, Ria Mae… She and my girlfriend have an ex in common, and I realise that by Canadian lesbian standards that’s plenty of degrees of separation, but still. She’s intimidatingly attractive and I’m weirdly uncomfortable about this Famous Person’s proximity to my life… Such confusing feelings!

    • I used to know her in Halifax when we both lived there and saw her concerts when she was a baby dyke musician playing in tiny venues. I feel weird she’s getting famous too. Also, yes is she is intimidatingly attractive but very nice and actually kinda shy.
