As missions go, Ben Cohen is making the impossible, possible. It's been a year since Gay Times last met the 33-year-old, 6ft 2ins (188cm), 16 stone (102kg) hunk as he began his post-England rugby career as the posterboy for anti-homophobia and bullying. In the last 12 months, his work with the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation has seen him travel America and Europe promoting their work and enlisted the support of everyone from sportsmen to pop stars and even royalty. Now he's teamed up with Bluebuck to launch his first range of underwear, with the profits going towards the foundation. "I think the most important thing about it is that I', straight and promoting a foundation that anti-homophobia," explains Ben. "I'm bridging the gap between gay and straight. And I think straight people are more likely to listen when they see me breaking down stereotypes." Full interview here!
