InstaQueer Roundup: Our Favorite Posts from the Week, Oct. 16

Andrea Marks Joseph READ TIME: 2 MIN.

Welcome to our latest round-up of queer Instagram posts! Each week we pick our faves: sexy outfit pics, sweet life updates, and selfies that had everyone talking. This week celebs maximized their joint slay, celebrated National Coming Out Day, and dropped horny music videos. We've got posts from a trans marathon runner challenging legislation, stars attending the Taylor Swift movie premiere, and Cardi B celebrating her birthday with a low-cut red dress and more rose petals than you've ever seen. Let's jump right in where it all begins...

Thirst Traps!

Hot people being hot is something that can be so important and so personal. Laverne Cox in a barely-there Mugler bra, Griffin Maxwell Brooks in thigh-high leather boots, and a "bronde" Chris Appleton on his knees.


Troye Sivan is in drag serving main pop girl for the "One of Your Girls" video; Shay Mitchell and Nicholas Galitzine continue to leave us breathless with their capacity for slaying; Lisa Rinna is breathtaking with a windswept dance class bob, and Willow Pill's tour announcement is a spiritual experience.

Maximizing Joint Slays

Taylor Swift and Beyoncé share a bucket of cinema popcorn; Dylan Mulvaney and her ludicrously capacious bag are the first guests on Tommy Dorfman's podcast; Tove Lo collabs with "Dirt Femme" ASL interpreters; and Chappell Roan – whose tremendous debut album just dropped – is giving both the spotlight and cash tips to drag performers opening for her on tour.

Sweetness, and Sweet Success

Cardi B went all out for her birthday, while it's 'bring your kids to work' day in the Daley household. The Reneé Rapp-JHud duet that everyone had Opinions about, and Justice Smith letting us know he's still happy and with his boyfriend, Nicholas Ashe. Nonbinary marathoner-activist Cal Calamia made great strides this week – literally, and figuratively – in their efforts to make the law more inclusive for all runners. And Jeremiah Brent shared a Coming Out Day reminder that there's a beautiful life ahead.
