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!!!
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.
Brittani Nichols’ here to remind us every single day: None of us are on her level.
Currently struggling to come up with a witty caption that isn’t some form of “O:SDFOSDF:EFOWOJSEFJ” at Lena Waithe’s cute smile.
Hayley Kiyoko closes out 2018 with a bang.
DID YOU MISS PATTERS?!?!?!?

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.)
Gaby Dunn coming down the chimney to create some Christmas mischief, despite being Jewish and apparently wearing a unicorn horn.
