TMZ has obtained a photo of San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver during his visit to The Trevor Project yesterday -- where he underwent sensitivity training after making homophobic comments before the Super Bowl.

Culliver vowed to educate himself about the challenges faced by the LGBT community after he said he would never welcome a gay football player in his team locker room.

A rep for The Trevor Project tells TMZ Culliver visited the L.A. center on Sunday and Monday ... explaining, "He learned about LGBT, gender identity and how that affects a young person."

The rep adds, "Chris is learning about LGBTQ youth [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning]  suicide prevention, and his role as a gatekeeper in helping to reduce risk and prevent suicide."

After his training, Chris told staff he had a "great experience" with the group and "learned a lot."

We're told the people Chris worked with also had "positive feedback" about the NFL player.

The rep says TTP is proud of Chris ... saying, "The first step is to reach out for help and Chris did that.”

if something is normal and natural you do not have to set campaigns to convince everyone that it is.

Another man that spoke his mind and his own opinion forced to go make restitution so he doesn't hurt the feelings of the gay community. I'm really getting tired of GLAAD and LGBT taking it upon themselves to make others think they way they do. If they don't believe in Gay liftestyle, or rights, let them believe what they do. I'm really, really, REALLY starting to hate these two organizations. WHO"S THE BULLY NOW?

Screw gay people and everyone else who cries when they get their feelings hurt. When u people realize that everyone will not support u or ur lifestyles the better off u'll be. Until then...fk off.

Political correctness was already too much and it's getting even worse. Do these orgs realize how counter productive these public relation stunts are? The more these agendas are shoved down out throats, the more backlash there will be, the comments here alone are evident of that.

I love how these two organizations are trying to preach tolerance for the gay and lesbian communities by BULLYING anyone that doesn't agree with them. I'm all for gay rights, you have the right to all the problems and miserable days as the rest of us but I'm not about to slam someone that doesn't believe in your choices. This is as bad as Religion BULLYING other people who don't believe in their bible, their teachings. Stick to what you believe in and leave other people alone. INTOLERANCE is bred by forcing others to think the way you do. It's nothing but HATRED for the way you conduct yourself that starts the problems.
