Chris Kluwe is a huge asset to the Minnesota Vikings not just because he is an outstanding player, but because he has been an inspiring and outspoken ally in defending and promoting sportsmanship and human rights for ALL, most specifically the historically marginalized LGBTQ community and bullied youth. Not only does he consistently kick the crap out the ball, he kicks intolerance and discrimination out of Minnesota, professional sports and the national dialogue.
When asked about the possibility of losing his job, the Minnesota Vikings punter says that if his activism “ends up being something that costs me that position, I think making people aware of an issue that is causing children to commit suicide is more important than kicking a leather ball.”
Chris Kluwe is an authentic northern light!!! Keep Chris Kluwe!!!
