San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver will work with a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender group in the coming weeks after the Super Bowl following remarks he made about homosexuals during the week.
Culliver will participate in "The Trevor Project" to educate himself about the community, according to his publicist.
"We really feel that education about LGBT youth and the challenges they face is a great way to get (Culliver) started on the right path, especially since he's a role model and there are kids all over the country with his poster on their wall, his jersey -- his fans that take his words and actions to heart," Lauren McGinnis, communications director for The Trevor Project, said in a statement.
Culliver made homophobic comments during Tuesday's Media Day when asked if he would accept a gay teammate.
Part of Culliver's apology for his remarks included speaking with a gay relative, cousin Andrew Brown, who directed "Word Is Out," a documentary about gay and lesbian directors.
"Brown has come forward in support of Chris and his efforts to educate himself about the true impact of his commentary," said a press release that announced Culliver's planned association with "The Trevor Project."
Culliver is the No. 3 cornerback and special-teams player for the 49ers.
