No Filter: Stephanie Beatriz Got a New Dog and He’s a Very Good Boy

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.

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.



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.



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.

Demi Lovato could definitely kick my ass if she wanted to, and I am very much at peace with this information.



Stephanie Beatriz got a new dog and named him after cheese. He already has his own Instagram page.

  1. The question isn’t whether you could dance like that, but why you would want to.

    I mean I’m sure Emma Portner is incredibly talented, but every time I see modern dance there’s a part of my brain that is saying “oh bless your heart” the entire time.

    Ok fine, it’s my whole brain.

  2. Since my daughter’s musical taste is currently limited to Paramore and angry/emo bands from the 00s, I am obligated to tell you that Gaby Dunn quoted Panic! At the Disco and not MCR. Sorry for being that person…
