No Filter: Tessa Thompson Wants to Drag You Gently

Queer Instagram this week is one big Met Gala spectacle, which Al(aina) already covered for you in glorious detail right here on Autostraddle dot com — but I know in my true heart Stef Schwartz would return from her No Filter sabbatical to shake her head in shame at me if I didn’t just include this one thing, this one tiny chill and casual totally regular thing.

Okay two things.

Stef, help.

Yes, ma’am, Ms. Wood Bisexual, ma’am.

Couple of napping puppies.

No thank YOU for capturing ME. No YOU.

Jasika Nicole didn’t stumble upon any trophies this week so I would like to present her with this Flashdance Award for Flashdancing. 🏆

Which lesbian wore it better?

She’s the best goddamn dancer in the American Ballet Academy, who the hell are you.

      • Well, “You’ll soon find out some wizarding families are much better than others, Potter” made me spit my drink, so I think you’re doing great.

  1. 1. heather thank you
    2. does tessa thompson have any idea what she’s doing to the gays
    3. samira wiley and lauren morelli are, most definitely, goals

    • tessa thompson knows exactly what she’s doing to the gays and she is doing it on purpose

  2. Sorry, but Cameron’s hair is the same as every rich, white fuck boy I went to HS with.

  3. The dancing is made even better by the fact that she’s dancing to Christine and the queens

  4. Bless you, Heather, for that perfect Center Stage reference. It made my morning.

  5. Cameron Esposito is every JRPG protagonist I had a crush on in jr. high.
