Marriage equality champion Chris Kluwe: ‘Everything a role model should be’

Now that his season is over, Chris Kluwe is making the rounds of the national media he so richly deserved last fall when he became a champion of equality.

He already conquered Colbert, and now he dances out to Ellen, presenting her with a game-worn jersey, which the die-hard Packers and Saints fan seemed thrilled with (she should, mine wasn’t even game worn and the sucker cost me $150). Still, Kluwe is just a joy to watch. He’s energetic, fun, positive, everything a role model should be.

Kluwe will be publishing a book in June of his uncensored essays on a variety of topics, titled “Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies.”
