Cohen’s role as an advocate for equality and the rights of the individual has been developing over the past few years through his work with the gay community both in the UK and the USA. He is the first straight sports star to dedicate his philanthropic efforts for the benefit of LGBT people.
All delegates to this years LGBT Conference will be able to attend the Awards and celebratory gala on Saturday 31 March, as part of their registration to the event.

CLARIFICATION ON ELECTION RULING: At the first deadline a nomination for the position of LGBT Officer Open Place was recieved from Sky Yarlett. To stand for this position the rules state that you must be an individual student member at a students' union in NUS membership (or be a sabbatical officer) and have been so at the close of Nominations.
As at 27 January 2012 the relevant college did not regard Sky as a current student. Therefore I ruled that they were not eligible to stand and as such their nomination was disregarded.
Elections were re-opened. At this stage Sky had enrolled on a course and so was a valid student.
Nathan Sparling, Sky Yarlett and re-open nominations are candidates in the election for LGBT Officer (open place)
