No Filter: Shout Out To Moms

Welcome back to No Filter, your regularly scheduled dose of queer celeb hot goss and thirst. You may notice that I am not your regularly scheduled dose of Stef Schwartz. While she is away at A-Camp, I have been left with the extremely noble responsibility of keeping tabs on rich hot people who don’t know I exist.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO THIS BEAUTIFUL FORCE OF LIGHT!! Mami you are the greatest blessing in the world. I️ am the woman I️ am because of all you have taught me. Thank you for loving me, thank you for guiding me, thank you for everything I️ forget to say thank you for. Being a mom is really hard and genuinely comes with no instructions. Thank you I️ love you I️ love you!! And to all the mothers out there who sacrifice and love their kids fiercely every day, thank you! And to all who have stepped in as mothers for those who have lost theirs, thank you. We love youuuuu💕💕💕💕 HAPPY MOTHERS DAY✨✨✨ ( and also to my beautiful grandmothers up above I️ love you insanely and miss you every day)

Oh, you thought that I, Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya, wouldn’t use a No Filter takeover the week of Mother’s Day as an excuse to publish #MomContent? Look at Lauren Jauregui and her mom! Mommi as hell.

I’m so proud of you. I love you momma. 💕

I know Hayley Kiyoko has already been featured once in this No Filter, but I just wanna say that it is extremely impressive to pull off a thirst trap whilst wearing a full sweatsuit. Good job!

I don’t really understand this British Vogue video but I don’t blame Cara Delevingne for wanting to marry herself.

An important dispatch from Drag Con.

Grateful to my whole crew for making this moment so unforgettable. #metgala

I KNOW Carmen already took you through the Met Gala’s best lesbian, bi, and queer lewks, but I think the more times Lena’s outfit is published on Autostraddle dot com, the better life will be for us all.

Let us gaze upon the ghosts of haircuts past.

Sara Ramirez wore another Good Outfit, what else is new?

Join us next week, when I’ll maybe post less photos of moms but NO PROMISES!
