No Filter: Happy 51st Birthday, Niecy Nash! We Are Looking on Respectfully

Welcome back to No Filter! You know how famous people always be on Instagram? Well this is place where I round up the best queer ones, and plop them here for your enjoyment!

Let’s start with a TBT!

“But Christina,” you say, horrified.”You’re writing this on a Tuesday! How can you…. make a TBT joke?”

“Dear one, it’s simple,” I chuckle fondly, but a little condescendingly. “For both days start with a T!”

POV: You are Chef Melissa’s boo.

POV PT 2: You are Chef Melissa’s boo and she just came home from a long day of work.

Oh to be a small dog betwix Gillian Anderson’s legs.

Actually huge day for dog content, in general! Look this bébé!

Look I am only human and we are living in a damn Paul Blart Mall Cop! Let me thirst!

As ever, I am looking respectfully.

Well now I’m just thinking about knife play thank you.

Were you wondering how Laverne is? Still straight up stunting on all of us, no worries.

I cannot explain to you how much joy it brings me to know that Da Brat is this happy about an ice machine.

I believe in Brunette Supremacy, tbh.

Okay so I am coming to accept there will literally be always two Niecy Nash images in this roundup because she loves content and again, to be clear I am looking respectfully.

  1. I’d be happy with a whole column of just Niecy Nash photos.

    And Chef Melissa.

    And Stacy London.

    Oh, and Tracy Lysette.

    Oh, OK, keep making posts with pictures of everyone.

  2. But brunettes…what? Brunettes what, Cara???

    Sidebar: how feasible is it for me to learn how to do rainbow under-eye makeup on myself, preferably in less than 10 minutes
