Rugby superstar and bear icon Ben Cohen, a longtime opponent of homophobia in sports, will continue to promote equality on a personal appearance tour that reaches the U.S. on May 19 in Atlanta before hitting New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C., later this month. The tour, which will team Cohen up with local gay and gay-friendly rugby clubs, will raise awareness and funds for the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network.
