No Filter: Local Dog Spooned by Samira Wiley

Welcome back to No Filter, where once a week we gather to discuss highlights of queer celebrity Instagram. This week, we somehow STILL do not have any leads on Tessa Thompson and Janelle Monáe but want you to know it is at the front and center of our brains and hearts. Kristen Stewart is choosing some bold looks. Amber Heard is still gal-pallin’ it up and telling this story about being told not to come out. How do you like her now? Other than that, the news is currently dominated by Garbage Men, so let’s get to work.

Is this the face of a woman having a blast?


Amandla Stenberg, looking very smug about how excellent their hair looks today.

  1. a) I need that “Against Smee” T-Shirt.
    b) ERWB…how dare you???(Srsly. Stop.Being.So.Hot.AF.)
    Is it bad that I want a coming-off-age romance where a girl is pursued by a bad-boy type and she only goes out with him to get closer to his wayyyy cooler older sister, played by ERWB, with whom she ends up driving into the sunset ?(The sequel will contain a love triangle between the girl, ERWB and Kristen Stewart)

  2. Look at the expression on that dog’s face. That is a dog that has fully recognised the moment as a life highlight.

  3. Is it bad that I want to know more about the Corvette? Like does ERWB own it? If so, can she pick me up in it for a Sunday cruise? Or we could just go do something gay like sit in the car awkwardly and enjoy the atmosphere.

    • it seems like her friend’s car? i feel like i read in an interview that she has a minivan, because she’s a mom

          • Depends, if we are queer pals then probably not? Hood on a Corvette of that era isn’t that expensive(but it also isn’t that cheap, around or under $900). It’s not a high end Mercedes or Jaguar where a replacement hood starts at $4,000 for some models. If I didn’t know here, I would because who wouldn’t want to say I told ERWB to get off my hood then asked if she needs a lift to Whole Foods, or Trader Joe’s?

          • No, but I would video the whole thing and then sell the car as “car whose hood was ruined by ERW herself”

  4. I’m a fan of Amber Heard’s and think she’s super intelligent and (usually) well-spoken, but this really got on my tits:

    The actress also notes that she doesn’t “identify as anything,” adding, “It’s so important to resist labels. I don’t care how many letters you add. At some point, it’s going to spell ‘WE ARE HUMAN.’ ”

    Like, no

  5. Evan Rachel Wood stop making smoking attractive you are smoking enough as it is errgkhkjhlkfkl
