NFL will fight anti-gay discrimination

League will display anti-discrimination posters and implement training programs

Mark another point for the LGBT community. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced yesterday that the National Football League (NFL) will increase its effort to fight anti-gay bias within the league.

The NFL has come under fire recently after three college football recruits said they were asked about their sexual orientation during interviews with the league in 2012. After talks with Schneiderman’s office, the NFL said it will implement an action plan to reinforce policies against discrimination. As part of the plan, the NFL will display anti-discrimination posters in locker rooms and it will implement anti-discrimination training throughout the league.
