In what undoubtedly will be seen as a controversial move, Texans owner Bob McNair donated $10,000 this week to a group advocating against LGBTQ rights.

The donation comes at a time when the NFL has been publicly promoting acceptance of gay players, particularly after Michael Sam, the league’s first openly gay player, was drafted last year.

McNair’s contribution went to The Campaign for Houston, a group that is opposing a proposition called Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). The ordinance would prohibit discrimination in the city based on race, gender, sexual orientation, age and a number of other factors.

A Campaign for Houston spokesman, Jared Woodfill, confirmed the donation Friday.
