The Shame & Sexuality series by Kevin Maxwell

For me, my gay shame was not standing up for myself against homophobia earlier on in my career, which eventually made me unwell. At the turn of the century, I joined the police having dreamt of it since I was five. I thought it was all about justice and protecting peoples’ freedoms, but my naivety had got the better of me. It was because of homophobia that I was forced out.

Cohen Mad

Cohen Mad

I’ll be honest; I’m a big Ben Cohen fan, so when tasked with interviewing the former rugby player pin-up, now founder of StandUp anti-bullying foundation, prior to his upcoming appearance at XXL’s Bear Pride this weekend, I was a little intimidated. It’s weird to be talking to someone you once had a poster of on your bedroom wall. XXL’s Mark Ames wrestled the mob of hungry bears off of Mr Cohen just long enough for us to have a chat, and thankfully, Ben was one of the sweetest and most gentlemanly guys I’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing. I probably won’t ever mention Pooh Sticks to him again though.
