Vikings to host daylong summit on LGBTQ inclusion in sportsMay 16, 2018 8:30pm

EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings plan to hold a daylong summit on LGBTQ inclusion in sports next month.

The Vikings announced Wednesday the summit will be held at the team's new headquarters in Eagan on June 21. A reception will be held afterward to raise money for local and national LGBTQ organizations.

Speakers include former Olympic diver Greg Louganis, former Vikings defensive tackle Esera Tuaolo and former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe.

In 2014, Kluwe accused Vikings special teams coordinator Mike Priefer of making anti-gay comments toward Kluwe while he was still on the team as a way of goading him for his gay rights advocacy. Priefer was eventually suspended for the first three games of the 2014 season and sent to workplace sensitivity training.
