WHO IS BEN COHEN? Benjamin Christopher "Ben" Cohen, MBE (born 14 September 1978) is a former England rugby union player and activist. He began his professional career with Northampton Saints in 1996; in 2007 he moved to France to represent Brive before returning to England two years later to join Sale Sharks. In May 2011, Cohen retired from professional rugby, and will focus on The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation he created to combat homophobia and bullying.
BOO ON ATLANTA- Two weeks ago, Ben went to the Atlanta Braves Stadium to promote anti-bullying and equality for gay and lesbian people, and the fans Booed him out! Way to go, my former home, Atlanta: Nice show of dumb, intolerant rednecks.
