No Filter: Who All’s Gay Here?

Welcome back to No Filter, a once-weekly collection of the week’s finest in queer celebrity Instagram. I usually spend most of my week combing terrible online tabloids looking for the worst coverage of straight celebrities, and this week is incredibly savage. This Radar headline wins:


Anyway, on to Instagram!!!

When a bitch fit is fit af.

Truth in advertising.

Jasika’s haunting rendition of one of my very favorite songs will also give you chills.

Instantly Iconic. Every queer person you know either went to or participated in this live reading of Casablanca featuring every gay person ever. Also, Olivia Wilde.

Bathroom Line-Up: Kate Moening, Kiersey Clemons, Lea DeLaria, Hannah Gadsby, Emily Hampshire, Ellen Page, Indya Moore’s red top hat.

I don’t know how King Princess managed to make this look good, but here we are and here it is.

Currently struggling to come up with a witty caption that isn’t some form of “O:SDFOSDF:EFOWOJSEFJ” at Lena Waithe’s cute smile.

I used to feel really anxious going to parties, especially if I knew actors or other people in entertainment would be there. I used to be so jealous of the work and success of others, because I was comparing myself and I focused on how I didn’t measure up. I wasn’t thin enough, pretty enough, smart enough, funny enough, famous enough. I stayed at those parties for like an hour and would bounce, drinking or eating my way through the hour and then berating myself afterwards for making myself sick with a food binge or with booze. I haven’t found some magical cure to my anxiety, but I am embracing the feelings of not belonging and moving forward and through them. Lately I let the feeling of not being enough (or being too much!) land, and then ask myself “is this really true?” I did that at a party the other day and ended up having the feelings disappear very quickly. Not entirely, but they faded to the background. I ate some marzipan candies and lots of ham and wore a pink turtleneck and had a great time. 💕 📸: @bradhoss

Listen OK, you’re not alone – Stephanie Beatriz has anxiety, too! (But even when Stephanie Beatriz has anxiety, she’s still Stephanie Beatriz.)

  1. That Lesbian Read of Casablanca was sensational. Hannah stole the show and I was surprised at how good Lea’s “as time goes by” was

  2. Yes, agreed that Teddy is looking great as always.

    That bathroom image is iconic and part of me wants to know the story behind it. Also, could this mean Indya might be into gals too?

  3. I could have sworn that Olivia Wilde had actually come out as bisexual at some point, but I guess it’s just one of those things where you want to believe it so bad that you actually start to believe it.

      • She also played bisexual in The O.C. and a movie called Butter so maybe casting directors are trying to tell her something.

    • Same here! I think she once answered-by-pleading-the-fifth on Andy Cohen’s show when asked if she’d ever “dipped into the lady pond” ( which feels sorta fantastical, BUT I too want to believe it, so lez just say yes?

      • Yeah, I’m pretty sure this is the original source of my confusion/fantasy. But for some reason I remembered it as she had already been known to be bi and they were just pressing her for details.

        Oh well. It’s like I always say, “Bisexual until proven otherwise!” (Actually that’s the first time I’ve ever said that, but it feels right.)

  4. okay but look up Timothee Chalamet at the Independent Spirit awards and you’ll see why I believe he and King Princess are just one androgynous very hot person

  5. that Casablanca live read was probably my favorite thing i’ve done since i moved to LA. it was glorious and super gay and i just loved every second of it.

  6. Gabby Dunn better be careful I hear it’s unicorn huntin season year-round in some parts.

    Anyone know where I could get me one of those?
