NEW ORLEANS (AP) - San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver will begin sensitivity training and education immediately after the Super Bowl following his anti-gay remarks this week, then begin volunteer work with at-risk homosexual youth nationwide.
Culliver is scheduled to begin working with ``The Trevor Project,'' an organization that provides crisis and suicide intervention to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth, according to his public relations representative, Theodore Palmer.
Palmer says Culliver will spend time volunteering at a crisis center in San Francisco.
During Tuesday's Super Bowl media day at the Superdome, the second-year defender responded to questions from comedian Artie Lange by saying he wouldn't welcome a gay player in the locker room. He also said the 49ers didn't have any homosexual players and, if they did, those players should leave. He later apologized.
