Welcome back to No Filter, your important political content for a Wednesday afternoon. Each week we wander the forests of Instagram, shaking the tree of queer celebrity social media and catching whatever wonderful, weird content falls out. This analogy is terrible! Here are some pictures of beautiful people living lives that are far more interesting than mine:
Let’s start out strong by celebrating this beautiful union of Danielle Brooks and Missy Elliott.
Behold, Lauren Jauregui amongst the foliage.
Annie Clark is out here lookin’ like an impossibly hip weirdo spy who choppered her way into her pilates class.
I always watch these videos of Emma Portner dancing and think, “Oh, this looks simple enough; I could do that if I wanted to,” and then instead of even attempting it, I eat more snacks in my desk chair. I’m gonna come clean with you, there’s no way in hell I could actually do this.
tonight they read my name in a couple categories on the Grammy stage and we already won for even being included, no matter the outcome. (s/o @itsdavidali) thank you recording academy and s/o everyone who won/ was nominated tonight. Everyone you saw on that carpet or stage started from the same place, a dream and hard work. Anything is possible, always — all ways. New tunes OTW v soon ?
There were a lot of Kehlani posts to choose from this week but I went with this one where she has the sweetest message and looks the absolute most like she is definitely your girlfriend.
Just a few months ago I pitched an idea to @directordonato, to adapt a short story I wrote for a short film and set it in Austin. Three months later here we are making it. With an almost all queer female crew, including DP @icecreamation. When no else is representing you right, do it yourself! Shoutout to all the amazing badass women doing the same. #FemaleFilmmakerFriday
I can’t wait to finally meet Jen Richards at A-Camp so I can ask her in person to post on Instagram more often.
Brittani Nichols is wintering in New York City and finding it to be terribly on brand.
Demi Lovato could definitely kick my ass if she wanted to, and I am very much at peace with this information.
I miss Banjo, and there will never be another dog like him. But I have the resources and the room in my heart for another little buddy, so I visited @thedogcafe_la: they are an amazing rescue that helps dogs socialize with other pups and get used to people so they can be their best selves, and then have a better chance of getting adopted. That’s where I met this bud. His name is @GoudaBoy ? and he’s pretty damn great. I have a feeling Banjo would approve. #adoptdontshop #amillionpicturesofmydog
Stephanie Beatriz got a new dog and named him after cheese. He already has his own Instagram page.
Here’s your pal Mallory Ortberg giving a baby the ol’ what-for.
Gaby Dunn has apparently joined My Chemical Romance.
Join us next week, when we will hopefully be rich in photos of Stephanie Beatriz’s new dog.
