Vikings Donate to LGBT Rights Groups to Settle Kluwe Suit

By John Mack Freeman

Earlier, GLBT News reported that Chris Kluwe was suing his former NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings, due to their unwillingness to release a report detailing that organization’s alleged homophobia and anti-LGBT practices. The Vikings announced that Kluwe’s termination had nothing to do with his staunch pro-LGBT stance, however.

To settle the threatened suit, the Vikings have agreed to donate an undisclosed sum to five different LGBT-related charities over the next five years. Via Talking Points Memo: “It also includes sensitivity training throughout the organization and plans for a national symposium on LGBT tolerance in Minneapolis in the spring.”
