  1. Chris Kluwe is ‘pretty confident’ he was sacked for his equal-marriage advocacy and we have plenty of reason to believe his confidence is not misplaced.

    And good for Chris Kluwe for speaking out about the homophobia in the USA’s National Football League. Does this League have a record for being supportive of LGBT rights? NO.

    what kind of support Chris needs and how we can do. I think we should support this inspiring act

    My Goodness we surely have a long way to go. We may win legal cases but winning minds is much harder.

    My heart goes out to Chris Kluwe who as a straight man showed us the decency everyone should expect. How can we help him. Please gay activists can we do something here. Will other clubs give him a try-out. He is a talented decent man who in his own way is trying to move society on.

    It is time for state governments to demand clubs have an Inclusion Advisor on every clubs Board. That would be a start.

    Chris I thank you for speaking out and hope this set back is recognised by those who can change things and that your future will be all you would wish for.

    Every success and happiness for the future. Thank you.
