Ben and his PR team in the UK and USA are gathering in New York this weekend to finalise the details for The Ben Cohen Acceptance Tour 2011. For some years now Ben, has been supporting his gay followers on matters of equality, acceptance of diversity and mutual respect.
He is now stepping up his involvement in both the UK and the USA with The Acceptance Tour 2011.
The Acceptance Tour 2011 will be supporting the activities of GLSEN based in the USA. The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network strives to assure that each member of every school community is valued and respected regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
Ben is passionate about these issues and is compelled to take action. He will be teaming up with Gay/Gay Friendly Rugby Clubs in the UK and USA and heading a variety of events raising money and awareness.
Ben says ‘ I believe that every person on this planet has a right to be true to themselves, to love and be loved and to be happy. That’s what we all want. I am in a privileged position to be able to spread some important messages across the globe – and that’s exactly what I am going to do’.
