WASHINGTON — October 1, 2012 HRC is unveiling a collaboration with rugby superstar Ben Cohen, MBE, to encourage everyone to come out and stand up for LGBT equality.
A champion on and off the rugby pitch, Cohen is the first straight professional athlete to dedicate his philanthropic efforts for the benefit of the LGBT community.
In celebration of the strong partnership between the Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation and HRC, this new tee features a re-working of the StandUp logo to include the HRC logo as well as the empowering message: “Stand Up For Equality” printed on the front. On the back, the words “Special Edition” are printed between an HRC logo and Ben’s signature.
100% of the proceeds from this t-shirt will support HRC’s and Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation’s shared commitment to ending bullying, tackling homophobia and realizing full LGBT equality.
The collaboration coincides with National Coming Out Day – a globally celebrated event held on October 11, encouraging LGBT people and their straight supporters to be visible by living open and honest lives.
