Ben Cohen and Billy Bean 'StandUp' at San Francisco Pride
The legendary athletes-turned-LGBT-icons speak with The Advocate about the widespread impact of the recent Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage, the future of out athletes in sports, and working to leave a legacy that drives cultural change.
Billy Bean is gay from what I've heard. Ben is not.
In May of this year, Bean joined forces with Cohen by joining the StandUp Foundation as vice chairman. Shortly thereafter, Cohen's organization teamed up with Nike to cosponsor the company’s #BETRUE 2013 Pride campaign. In addition to offering a range of Pride-themed products, the sports brand also had a strong presence at the San Francisco Pride Festival last weekend.
Nike also sponsored a “Glow Run” on the evening of June 28, when Bean and Cohen ran side by side with more than 150 people decked out in Nike Pride shirts and glowing accessories though the city’s historic Castro district to kick off the weekend’s celebration.
Billy Bean is a notorious pussyhound and a big Bush supporter.
Is Billy Bean still with the guy who was his secret partner while he was still playing ball?
