No Filter: Joy Is Realizing Cynthia Nixon Has Impeccable Taste in Books

Hello and welcome back to No Filter! This is where I round up the best gay content from IG and present it here, for you! What luck!

Emma looks like the exact kind of person who would have been in like, the cooler group of people I hung out with in college, just a few steps up on the social ladder but… truly worlds away.

One thing Kate is gonna do is look absolutely incredible in a suit.

Almost every time I see a post from Ashley I think “Okay girl, that seems nice for you!” regardless of my level of understanding.

Y’all I want braids so BAD and this shit is NOT HELPING! (Yes, I would look exactly like this, I am not taking any questions on that claim at this time.)

…. I can’t.

Miriam Webster once defined joy as “The feeling when you realize Cynthia Nixon has impeccable taste in books.”

Okay I had to look up their charts, for my own sanity. Niecy is a Pieces Sun AND Venus (tracks) Jessica is Gemini Sun with a Gemini Venus, (also tracks.) Both with a Moon in Libra. God bless.


Ayo Demi can I hold this shirt for a minute I just need it for science and fashion also.

Sometimes it is important to remember that Cara is an EXTREME Leo.

My Brain: ….don’t say it
Just don’t say it
Christina, you are a grown woman, act right and simply do not say it.

ME: DADDY’S HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I love that Niecy Nash is like THE GAYEST celebrity their is right now. We need more out and loud black celebrities like her and Lil Nas X because I think young people who may be questioning their sexuality need to see that they don’t need to hide that aspect of themselves in order to be successful. I didn’t think this would have been possible 20 years ago. I am so proud every time a celebrity of color comes out. Little me could have really used seeing that when I was growing up.

  2. “Almost every time I see a post from Ashley I think “Okay girl, that seems nice for you!” regardless of my level of understanding.”

    If I’m being honest (and I am) that’s my reaction to like 50% of this column every week and maybe 95% of Shelli’s tik tok column.

  3. Just stopping by to say that it took me a minute to see that chef Melissa King was not emerging leg forward from the back of a chair wearing a 2 dimensional shirt with a broad tan stripe
