Retired rugby star and now full-time anti-bullying advocate Ben Cohen launches his new magazine and hosts a sports awards dinner in Atlanta on Wednesday — and informed sources say Babydaddy from the famed Scissor Sisters will be on hand to join in the celebrations.
The Compete Sports Diversity Awards and StandUp Magazine launch will be held together on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at TWELVE Atlantic Station, located at 361 17th St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30363. Tickets are still on sale for both events and can be purchased here. Nov. 14 also marks the Second Annual StandUp Day marking the anniversary of Cohen's father's death after he was killed trying to stand up for an employee who was being attacked.
From Cohen about the Second Annual StandUp Day:
Cohen, with his hunky good looks and and a frequent guest to Atlanta, was named an honorary Atlanta Pride grand marshal this year and also held a Kiki by the Park party during Pride weekend to raise funds for his foundation. The official remix of the Scissor Sister's song "Let's Have a Kiki" by DJ Robin Skouteris with the help of Atlanta's Eagle's own DJ Pat Weikle was released at this party.
The StandUp Foundation works by raising money and then awarding grants and funding other organizations that work to stop bullying. Cohen is willing to strip to his underwear and use his gripping good looks for a calendar to raise money for a good cause, too.
Besides fundraisers, StandUp Foundation sells merchandise, through Nike and the Human Rights Campaign, as well as Cohen's own calendar and underwear, to raise the money needed to help in the fight against bullying.
Check out why Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears along with Babydaddy say they support Cohen and his StandUp Foundation:
