Welcome back to No Filter, our once-weekly stroll through the lush gardens of queer celebrity Instagram. This week, Tessa Thompson is just fucking with us:

And with that, let’s get to work.
Janell Monáe IS pride, I don’t know what to tell you.
DJ Kittens (the glue that binds all forms of The Chart together) seen here carousing with Carmen de la Pica Morales, who’s doing great all these years after being left at the altar by Shane McCutcheon, known lothario.
Just down the street, Shane, Tasha and Alice are cooking something together; judging by the ingredients I would like to believe it’s a margarita but since it’s in a bowl I can only assume it’s guac.

During my book tour in September last year, @jynxisme98 came to the meet and greet and said if I was ever in SF for Pride, I was welcome to ride with the Dykes on Bikes on the back of her bike. She's now President of the Dykes on Bikes! I never expected it to work out but wow it was a dream just to be asked. By sheer luck, I was actually in SF for Pride today! So Jen and I linked up and I rode in the Parade on the back of her motorcycle waving at people like the goddamn duchess of bisexuality! Thank you, Jen and thanks to butches everywhere. We don't deserve you!
Jeez, let Gaby Dunn ride with the Dykes on Bikes one time and suddenly she declares herself the goddamn duchess of bisexuality.
I would pay money to hear this conversation between Caleb McLaughlin and Lena Waithe right now.
If there is one thing in this world I truly love, it is Brittani Nichols interacting with farm animals.
I would like to start using the phrase “the most Blanche Devereaux thing I have put on my body” more often, please.
If you leave Evan Rachel Wood alone anywhere for five minutes, she will return with an 80s montage. It’s just science.
Hayley Kiyoko and Kehlani joined forces to beam rainbows out of their goddamn stomachs like a pair of lesbian care bears in San Francisco.
Previously on Hayley Kiyoko, apparently this is what she looks like when she wakes up.
Am I cheating by including the greatest celebrity of all, Autostraddle CEO/CFO/Editor-in-Chief Riese Bernard’s very famous dog Carol? Look how much pride she has!
How am I going to get any work done today after seeing ERWB dancing around in a cowboy hat?
Carmen and DJ Kittens is the Persian action I didn’t know I needed. It could make a great tv show, two lesbian DJs that compete against each other at events, but are also married and madly in love.
I would watch that.
Montages in movies in the 80’s was one of the few things good about high school.
wow that carol kid is HOT HOT HOT
Dear Tessa Thompson,
? Quit playing games with my heart… ?
Is it me or Sarah Shahi just gets hotter by the minutes?
I can’t take it anymore, and have to ask somewhere. This is about pictures, so it feels like the closest to right place.
In the “Gender Traitor” ad, is that that baby’s real hair?!?! It’s amazing either way.
Stef, most excellent work this week, thank you.
