No Filter: Rhea Butcher Brought You These Roses

Welcome back to No Filter, your weekly dose of celebrity Instagram served cold over a bed of decorative kale. This week, a lot of famous queers paid tribute to their similarly attractive partners via social media, the only way to prove to millions of fans that your relationship is real. Let’s get to work!

This is adorable and all, but judging from the glass I’m pretty sure Holland took Sarah to the Times Square TGI Fridays.

Rhea, you need to take it down a notch, you’re making literally everyone else on earth look bad.

Somehow when Mary Lambert’s heart feels infinite, everybody else’s heart feels slightly more OK.

Here we have Stephanie Beatriz raising money for a good cause with this very handsome doggo growing out of her shoulder.

Ready for Valentine's Day

A post shared by Brittani Nichols (@bishilarious) on

Brittani Nichols has summed up all of my feelings about Valentine’s Day in one solemn expression.

I love that Meredith Graves chose to use her one Grammy red carpet Instagram selfie on Enya, and Enya looks pumped as fuck to be interviewed by MTV in 2017.

I really truly believe if I include Stella Maxwell in No Filter every week I will finally remember what her face looks like.
Janelle Monáe went to ACTUAL SPACE; at least I assume she did.

Laura got to go on The Daily Show (with Dan Ozzi, her co-author) and looks so earnestly excited about it I could actually die.

Lauren, Samira and Danielle all went to a bunch of fashion week stuff and learned more about how to be better-looking than literally all the other people on earth. It’s fine.

My esteemed colleague Mey Rude wanted me to tell you guys about Torraine, a trans model/actress/singer who looks amazing in giant silky shirts and has apparently previously described herself as “basically a whole ass lesbian.” Welcome aboard, Torraine.

Evan Rachel Wood directed her band’s new video for “Lightning Look” and I can’t watch it because I’m too nervous about her and Zach rollerskating around with guitars – like, what if you fall?

Join us next week, when Evan Rachel Wood and her band take us on a journey into the wild world of rock’n’roll glow bowling.
