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

A post shared by Kate Moennig (@kateomoennig) on

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!

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. Without looking, I don’t know if that Hayley Kiyoko pic was in last week’s article, or whether that is just my Twitter life.

    • Yeah they do already have a dog together and are all over each other’s Instagram, but I guess the question is can any queer couple really be confirmed without Autostraddle coverage?

      • I have so many thoughts and feelings and opinions on all of this and the lack of coverage on Autostraddle that I cannot deal.

        tl;dr krieger & harris have clearly been together for years but existed in somewhat of a glass closet. recently krieger started sporting a giant diamond ring and their instagram content has gotten gayer ever since.

  2. OMG. Stef. Danielle Brooks IS dressed like a Mariah Carey song sounds! That’s the best description I have ever heard!

  3. At the risk of sounding like I spend way way too much time on Autostraddle Instagram, Stef, is this piece complete without your celebrity Mandarin Duck sighting? Because that duck for sure has an alternative lifestyle feathercut.

  4. I am generally not a fan of sports, but I am a fan of gay athletes so I was very happy to witness this couple’s gaycation.

  5. 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)?

    • They’re at this resort in Grenada called La Luna…Ali keeps tagging it in her Instagram stories. It looks very fancy and tropical and obviously getting gayer by the hour.



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

    • I wish you did that because I had to find out Mewis and Daly were dating after everyone else and it was a shock, let me tell you

    • Go rogue! Just publish it here in the comments and link to the relevant pictures. Be a rebel!

      • sorry failure was a harsh word. and i can totally do text but it takes me legit forever to figure out a way to get the photos posted in the comments and it’s just too much time. if someone else would post the actual photos, i’d do all updates.

        also maybe i should just rogue post my if woso players were l word characters piece, because rachel daly as shane needs to exist. i do need to update because krieger’s post-nt openness cements her and harris as bette and tina.

  7. So I created an account to say yall are late on the woso train, not only have they been pretty open for the past few months, but there have been some rings spotted ?

  8. More soccer news: Stephany Mayor and Bianca Sierra, two former players of the Mexico WNST announced their engagement through Instagram last week! They currently live in Iceland and play in european teams.

  9. If I had a had self denial phase I’m pretty sure that clip of Danielle Brooks in that dress woulda dragged me right the fuck out of it.
