Minnesota Vikings punter and BuzzFeed Hero Chris Kluwe has fast become one of the most public and well known professional athletes when it comes to supporting LGBT rights. Now, he’s put his mouth where his mouth is and recorded a radio spot advocating for gay marriage. In particular, the spot opposes the Marriage Amendment that Minnesota voters will weigh in on on November 6; if passed, it would change the Minnesota Constitution to say that the only legitimate marriages that can be recognized by the state are between one man and one woman.
In the spot, Kluwe is visited by mock policeman who harass him for his now-famous open letter, posted by Deadspin, in which he promised Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns, Jr. that gays being able to marry would not turn him into a “lustful cockmonster.” Listen below.
