No Filter: Tessa Thompson’s New Gal Pal(?) Seems Cute

Gather round, my children, and let us celebrate another week of glorious queer celebrity Instagram. This week in News, our pal Kristen Stewart was photographed during a “steamy” make out session with her presumed new girlfriend, fashion visionary Sara Dinkin. Click through if your version of steamy make outs involves half of one sunglasses lens and like, half an ear. Additionally, my esteemed colleague Kayla recently alerted us to the following photograph and the suspiciously chummy nature of the body language between Connie Britton and a smirking, bikini-clad Carrie Brownstein:

If they ate dating I will go out, buy a hat and eat it. I will never stop screaming. Also how about St Vincent super casually hanging in the middle of this crew? The ways of these people remain a complete mystery to me.

With one deft motion, Amandla Stenberg establishes immediate superhero status.

With one deft motion, Brittani Nichols eviscerates everyone’s dreams of writing the perfect Personals. It’s already been done.

Samira Wiley, champion of the 1998 Coney Island Hot Dog Eating Contest. Probably.

Look at that subtle hand on the knee. Tessa and her new girlfriend are keeping things low key.

Looks like a Jenny Owen Youngs impression to me but what do I know?

    • They must know each other through Liz Lambert (the woman in the middle with short hair), who is a rich and influential “hotelier” and power lesbian based Austin… she owns a bunch of very fancy and expensive hotels and is known to hang out with quite a few celesbians, meeting them through her business, I guess? Carrie has referenced visiting Austin and spending time with Liz in the past, so presumably she’s part of that celesbian collection. Connie Britton has spent time in Austin filming Friday Night Lights, and I would assume that she’s in Liz’s circle as another rich/influential person with Austin connections, but now I’m hoping it’s also because she’s queer lol.
