Oakland Raiders Sign Chris Kluwe

Just ten days after being released by the Minnesota Vikings, LGBT ally Chris Kluwe has been picked up by the Oakland Raiders. The news was broken by fellow activist Brendon Ayanbadejo.
Kluwe intends to continue the activism that rankled some within the Vikings organization. He told Ayanbadejo he hopes to support the push to repeal Proposition 8, which was passed in 2008 and governs that California only recognizes marriages between a man and a woman. "I'm still going to be myself socially and continue to tweet and interact with my fans," Kluwe told Ayanbadejo, whose own activism while playing for the Baltimore Ravens helped bring Kluwe into the national debate on marriage equality.
