No Filter: Tegan, Shane, Alice and Dana Ring in the Holigays!

Here we are in another glorious week of the ramshackle world of queer celebrity social media. This week, everybody who does a sport decided to date each other I guess! Let’s dig in.

Grateful for this crowd right here

When I say the words “gay Thanksgiving,” what comes to mind? Is it exactly this photo? It was exactly this photo, wasn’t it?

I will celebrate Kehlani’s journey to Mommidom every week for the rest of my life.

Ah yes, fine time for a game of billiards.

Danielle Brooks is dressed like how a Mariah Carey song sounds. I love it.

A post shared by Stephanie Beatriz (@stephaniebeatriz) on

Here’s a cool story: Last year I got taken to an LA Kings game and I didn’t know what sport it was until I got there. Turns out they play hockey! Stephanie Beatriz loves sports and so do I.

More on me not knowing anything about sports: I am choosing to pull this caption from my esteemed colleague Molly Priddy.

“Hello,” Molly says, “it seems as though Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger are finally dating.”

I’ll take your word for it, mostly because this caption is already maybe the gayest thing I’ve ever seen.

My pal Heather Hogan chimes in to inform us, “I’m here with your celebrity lesbian athlete update. According to Sue Bird’s instagram stories, she is for sure on a couple’s vacation with Megan Rapinoe, Ali Krieger, and Ashlyn Harris.”

This is legit! I’m a journalist.

I worked until 5am this morning so, I’m late getting to it, plus my head is cut off but who cares! It’s Giving Tuesday and I’m supporting @pawworks to “Be Good, Do Good,” to help Paw Works and the tremendous amount of animals displaced by the recent fires in Southern California. Join us by buying this t-shirt for $35.00 and @brindlemarket will donate 100% of proceeds until November 28! Or donate directly at @pawworks and help us save lives! Our friends at @petcofoundation will also match up to $25,000 today until the end of the month for every donation made. Helping make a huge impact for all animals displaced this holiday season, especially the many homeless pups now in Paw Works’ care! #givingtuesday #pawworks #dogoodbegood #woolseyfire #giveback #rescuelife @normancook @mssarahcatharinepaulson @therachlindsay @thebryanabasolo @bobbydtv @ashcambanjo @raeganrevord @theparkerbates @chriscortazzo @malibuhomesfordogs @officialjairodriguez @mikalahgordon

A post shared by Sarah Paulson (@mssarahcatharinepaulson) on

It’s really nice to give and all, but I’m still upset Sarah Paulson is walking around in this horribly misspelled “Be Gay, Do Crimes” shirt.

Join us next week for more romance in the world of SPORTS.

  1. Danielle just make that outfit look wow.

    I googled seven sisters waterfall and Norway came up, which doesn’t make sense since, you know it’s end of fall and they don’t look cold. So was this taken in the summer or is there another Seven Sisters waterfall else where(which would make sense since there is 7 in the name)?



    My hobby is figuring out which women’s soccer players are dating/together, please.
