Ben Cohen – Face To Face video

The English rugby player chats with Out about his new anti-bullying StandUp Foundation.

The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, Inc. is the world’s first foundation dedicated to raising awareness of the long-term, damaging effects of bullying, and funding those doing real-world work to stop it. We stand up against bullying regardless of to whom it happens. Because lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people are often targeted by bullies, we give particular attention to this community. We include removing homophobia from sports as central to our mission.

Ben Cohen, MBE, is an England Rugby World Cup champion, and among the world’s greatest athletes. He ranks second in all-time scoring for England, and first among straight professional athletes to focus his philanthropic efforts for the benefit of the LGBT community.

In case readers haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of Ben Cohen. He is an amazing and beautiful man inside and out.

The LGBT community has a great ally in Ben Cohen.
