WATCH: Cast of 'Hamilton' sing 'Go Cubs Go'

The Chicago Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years on Wednesday night and on Thursday the Chicago cast of ‘Hamilton’ sang ‘Go Cubs Go’ to celebrate the city’s World Series title.

The cast flew the 'W' flag during the song and the Chicago audience loved every second of it.

August 14 is Gay Uncles Day

We have celebrations and special days for just about everything, so why not Gay Uncles Day?Apparently it’s time for nephews and nieces to show appreciation for their ‘guncle’. And that day is August 14, according to the Internet hashtag campaign #GayUnclesDay. 

And although the campaign has taken off the last few days, it seems the concept of a Gay Uncles Day was actually first posted on Facebook back in May by Florida resident C.J Hatter.

The original idea was given a significant boost this week when hunky Olympic bob skier Simon Dunn posted a meme about it to his Facebook and Twitter, which has since been shared thousands of times.


#GayUnclesDay — why not? 

I asked columnist and proud ‘guncle’ Terrence Chappell what he thought.  

“There’s a lot of barriers to being yourself in the world. All I want for my niece and nephew is for them to be themselves and be happy,” Chappell said. “I’m proud to be a gay uncle because I can teach my niece and nephew how to unapologetically be themselves even when it can seem a little scary at times.”

So whether the special day actually takes off, I share some love and appreciation with Terrence (pictured with his nephew and neice) and all the gay uncles out there!
