No Filter: Of Course Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli Had Matching Christmas Pajamas

Welcome back to No Filter, a once-weekly examination of the internet’s best queer celebrity social media. It’s been a slow news week due to the holidays, but if you were worried that Kristen and Stella would break up while you were busy opening presents, FEAR NOT. Even though her ex boyfriend from three years ago is single now, she is miraculously holding it together.

If I knew I could spend Christmas playing chess with Santa’s slutty sister I’d probably have a better attitude about the holidays.

Merry Christmas to all! ❤️🎄🎁

These two candy cane nerds have got to calm down.
God I love the great outdoors.
Gaby Dunn and her girlfriend went to Florida for Christmas and somehow got even gayer.
I just really appreciate how much Kehlani supports her local sandwich.

This was the moment I realized I had no idea what Mallory Ortberg’s actual voice sounded like and that I was only familiar with Anna/Joan. It did not make the contents of this video less disturbing.

Warm holiday wishes from your girlfriend Lena Waithe.

How I spent my #ChristmasVacation. 🎄🦁

I am upset. Also, this has ruined my life:

This is a terrifyingly perfectly-timed video and it has nothing to do with anything we do here but I just need you all to see it.

Just so you’re aware.

Call Out Post: Our tech director Cee doesn’t believe in astrology and likes to inform everyone that planets don’t move backwards and retrograde isn’t real but like DID YOU JUST EXPERIENCE THAT MERCURY IN RETROGRADE PEOPLE?? I can’t believe I made it out alive.

  1. “The time for it to happen” is indeed here now, Mallory, if by “it” we mean me hitting that Follow button. I have no idea what that brilliant nonsense was but it made me blow air out my nose and I need more of that in my life.




    You covered a lot of my celebrity girlfriend interests this week, Stef. Thank you.

  3. Thanks for knowing what I want to see way better than Instagram’s algorithms. I’d be lost in posts from two weeks ago by people I barely know without you.

  4. I don’t know what is going on in Mallory’s video but I needed the laughter it gave me today. The random, slow spritzes of cleaning spray? What?! Hahaha

  5. Vapid Fluff gives me that puppy crush feeling like I had when I was 12 and flipping through Tiger Beat to find the pics of Devon Sawa (my first lesbian crush).

  6. How can I get on Santa’s sisters good list? I have rainbow cookies and LaCroix at my place to offer when she sneaks in at night.
