The Web site NewCivilRightsMovement.com ran an article today about how former NFL punter (and heterosexual) Chris Kluwe used his legal settlement with the Minnesota Vikings to fund some LGBTQ charities.

They used my photo for their article! YAY!

Chris Kluwe 02 - DC Capital Pride - 2014-06-07

As you may be aware, Kluwe played for the Minnesota Vikings for years. When he publicly supported gay marriage, the Vikings coaching staff made public comments disparaging him and his views, and making extreme homophobic statements. The team then fired Kluwe -- not for being a bad punter, but for supporting gay marriage. He sued, and an out-of-court settlement was reached.

Kluwe has donated the results of this settlement to gay charities.
