With the Chicago Cubs in the World Series for the first time since 1945, it's a good time to take a look at a franchise that has been very LGBT-supportive. The Cubs have the longest streak of gay days in the Major Leagues. Co-owner Laura Ricketts is an out-and-proud lesbian and the team sponsors a float in Chicago's pride parade. We talk to Bill Gubrud, who started the Out at Wrigley promotion.

We also examine the use of "sissy" as a gay slur, in light of a sign held up by a BYU football fan.
