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 GoPride.com 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!

WeAreOrlando -- Volunteers needed

Windy City Times and ChicagoPride.com (GoPride.com) are coordinating a moment of silence and memorial during the 47th annual Chicago Pride Parade for the 49 victims of the Orlando shooting at Pulse nightclub on June 12.  

Large images of the victims have been created by Brad Delaney from One Million Kids for Equality, Theresa Volpe and Mercedes Santos. Topweb printer has produced large printed images of these for inclusion in the Chicago Pride Parade Sunday, June 26, 2016, to be carried by volunteers right after the lead banner. 

People willing to help carry the signs, especially Latinx LGBTs, are encouraged to arrive at 11 a.m. at the press check-in at the SW corner of Montrose and Broadway.

If you'd like to volunteer or assist, please contact us
