Another reason rugger Ben Cohen remains one of the most popular sports icons among gay men: He is openly supporting an August 30 Sports Day hosted by Gay Men Fight AIDS, a London-based gay men's health charity.
I am happy to support this year’s GMFA/RVT Gay Sports Day. Sport is an important part of my life and it’s great to see a community come together and enjoy sport in such a fun and accessible way. Plus it raises vital funds for the important work carried out by GMFA and the other charities which will benefit from the day.
I would encourage everyone to form a team and take part or show your appreciation by making a donation on the day. I will personally be donating items that will be part of an auction at the end of the event. Best of luck to all the competitors and have a fantastic day.
