Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe and his former employer reached a settlement according to the National Journal. As part of the settlement of the lawsuit in which the player had claimed that he had been wrongfully terminated for his public support of same-sex marriage, the Vikings will donate money to five LGBT charities for the next five years. Two of the charities that will receive a donation are the Matthew Shepard Foundation and You Can Play.
The other three charities were not revealed as they have not been told that they will be receiving the funds. In addition to the donations, the Vikings also suspended their special teams coach for three games. The suspension came after it was determined that he had made anti-gay remarks in his capacity as a coach. He was also ordered to undergo sensitivity training.
