Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is developing a bigger fan base — and it’s not made up of just football fans. Several people turned up at a Minneapolis public awareness fundraiser in support of same-sex marriage to meet the player, WCCO-TV reports.
The outspoken Kluwe grabbed national attention last week after he wrote a scathing open letter to a Maryland lawmaker who criticized a Baltimore Ravens player for supporting same-sex marriage — which even has talk show host Ellen DeGeneres talking about it.
On Saturday, the Star Tribune profiled Kluwe, calling him a “symbol of changing attitudes toward homosexuality in the sports world.”
