No Filter: Kate Moennig and Leisha Hailey Invite You To “Loud and Proud: Back In The Habit”

Hello and welcome to No Filter, your somewhat timely look at which celebrities were on Pride floats and who stayed home to play with their hair. This week was also a big one for all of us at Autostraddle who were at A-Camp, from which we continue to recover. Also, good morning to Evan Rachel Wood’s 300+ Pride Outfits but also… good morning to everybody else.

Evan Rachel Wood drank some Pride-themed Butterbeer and picked herself up a Bisexual Visibility Cloak.

It will not surprise you to learn that Janelle Monae has been stylish since before you were born.

Props to Kate and Leisha, #sisterwives, who upped their insta game by approximately 150% over Pride Weekend. They also took some time out at Pride to subtly confirm their casting in “Generation Q” as Faceless Blond Woman and Faceless Shane Haircut Woman:

Tag yourself I’m the cherubic god of the wild, shepherds and flocks straddling the devil while yearning for the chance to feed Tessa Thompson some grapes.

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We need to raise $175k in the next 2 weeks — or we won't make it to Pride. And a world without Autostraddle would be a loss on so many levels. Help us keep this indie queer media boat afloat! Every dollar helps.
