Video: Rugby's Ben Cohen talks about his foundation to stop homophobia in sports

We have written a lot about rugby player Ben Cohen, who has now retired and started his StandUp foundation. His goal is to fight homophobia, specifically in sports.

Cohen sat down last week with Thomas Roberts on MSNBC to discuss his recent tour of the U.S. and what he hopes to accomplish. Roberts, himself openly gay, has in the last few months done three gay-sports specific stories, on Cohen, wrestler Hudson Taylor and high school athlete Craig Cassey.
