Vikings Will Host LGBTQ Summit As Part of Chris Kluwe Settlement

The Minnesota Vikings will host an LGBTQ summit and fundraiser as part of a settlement over anti-gay comments purportedly directed at former Vikings player Chris Kluwe.

The paper notes that the Vikings is the first NFL team to host a gay summit/fundraiser, but the event was not necessarily the team’s idea.

It is a result of an agreement with former punter Chris Kluew who threatened to sue after special teams coordinator Mike Priefer reportedly used anti-gay language.

“It’s a big deal to have an NFL team … put on a summit for LGBTQ issues,” Kluwe added.

The former punter also said he hopes other NFL teams join the Vikings in holding events like this.
