San Francisco Player Who Made Anti-Gay Remarks Visits Gay Youth Outreach Center

Weeks after saying a gay teammate wouldn’t be welcome in an NFL locker room, the San Francisco cornerback made another step toward amends.

1. Remember Chris Culliver, who made waves before the Super Bowl in slamming the idea of having an openly gay NFL player?

2. And that they wouldn’t be welcome in the 49ers’ locker room?

3. And that all gay NFL players should just forget about coming out while they’re still playing?

4. And then he apologized and pledged to “learn and grow” from the fallout?

“It has taken me seeing them in print to realize that they are hurtful and ugly. Those discriminating feelings are truly not in my heart. ..— Jim Trotter

"Further, I apologize to those who I have hurt and offended, and I pledge to learn and grow from this experience.” (end)

7. And then Jacoby Jones owned him in the Super Bowl?

8. Well, Culliver is trying to learn from all that. The first step: Spending time with the Trevor Project, which provides suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.
