Ben Cohen Launches Magazine
The magazine, which carries the tagline 'True Champions Stand Up,' will feature the personal stories of athletes and focus on such things as character, fairness and inclusion. Among the articles in the debut issue are on the National Hockey League taking the lead in the fight against homophobia and whether the National Football League is ready for an openly gay player. "We stand up against bullying regardless of to whom it happens," the foundation states on its website. "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."There will be a kick-off party for the magazine in New York City in November.
