Ben Cohen Launches STAND UP Magazine
I met Ben Cohen about 1 year ago
dedicated to raising awareness of the long-term, damaging effects of
bullying, and funding those doing real-world work to stop it.
The first issue of the quarterly publication (photo) hits on Nov. 14
with a W Midtown Hotel launch party hosted by the cover boy – Cohen, who
else? – himself, according to a Wednesday announcement from Cohen and
his Atlanta-based foundation.
The magazine will carry the tagline “True
Champions Stand Up,” feature athletes’ personal stories, and focus on
the “best in sports, including character, fairness and inclusion.”
StandUp magazine benefits the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation and its
effort to fight bullying and remove homophobia from sports. It will be
available nationwide with planned distribution by subscription and at
Barnes & Noble stores. Future issues are scheduled to come out in
February, May and August 2013.
Of course, Cohen has experience as a cover boy and using his sex
appeal to further his cause with gay fans in Atlanta across the world. Video of his sexy 2013 calendar shoot is a hit in itself. The magazine cover follows his StandUp underwear line, a hot 2012 calendar (view photos), just as scrummy and yummy 2011 calendar and soaking wet 2010 calendar.
