Ben Cohen Launches STAND UP Magazine

I met Ben Cohen about 1 year ago

 when he launched his STAND UP campaign in Chicago. 
He said to me, “We plan to REALLY DO SOMETHING about bullying – not just talk about how things will get better for someone” –
3500+ sports teams have signed his STAND UP Charter. He is truly bringing awareness and making changes in the world of sports. 
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.

Gay Atlanta can’t get enough of rugby stud Ben Cohen, and vice versa. A week after his last visit and even before he returns to top Atlanta Pride, Cohen’s StandUp Foundation announces its new magazine and sets an Atlanta launch party for November.

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.
