hillary clinton to be honored at elton john aids foundation 12 annual benefit

More than 20 years ago, Sir Elton John founded the Elton John AIDS Foundation in hopes of thwarting the terrible disease, and the organization has grown quite a lot over the past couple of decades!

On October 15th, the EJAF will be hosting its 12th annual An Enduring Vision benefit at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, and it has a very impressive guest list!

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will be hosting the event for the 7th consecutive year, and one of the major guests of honor will be Hillary Rodham Clinton!

The former Secretary of State will be given the Founder's Award for her moving speech in Geneva, where she famously said "gay rights are human rights and human rights are gay rights," and she's also being recognized for her efforts to reach the goal of living in an AIDS free world!

It's so great to see Elton John's organization taking on such an important issue and making sure it doesn't simply get swept under the rug!

Hopefully events like these will continue to raise awareness and get even more people talking about how we can beat AIDS, once and for all!

Anderson Cooper's Hot Boyfriend Is Opening ANOTHER NYC Bar!

Benjamin Maisani must be riding high right now, because not only is he still dating Anderson "The Silver Fox" Cooper, but he is a co-owner of a punk gay bar called Eastern Bloc on East 6th Street and the straight-friendly Bedlam on Avenue C! They're both doing really well — so well, in fact, that he's opening a new joint!

This one is called the Atlas Social Club, and it'll be at 51st and 9th in Hell’s Kitchen this fall!

Apparently it's going to be a cross between a “gay speakeasy and a retro athletic club." We're not positive at what exactly that means in terms of style, but we DO know it'll have old boxing, wrestling and bodybuilding photographs displayed on the interior!

Good luck, Benjamin!

And hey, if that means we get more A-Coop sightings, then put us on the list!

Charles Barkley Thinks NBA Players Who Think They've Never Played With A Gay Player Are 'Idiots!'

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAnderson CooperCharles Barkley

Leave it to Charles Barkley to say what we're all thinking in the boldest way possible! LOLz!

When asked to comment on Jason Collins coming out as a gay NBA player, Charles had some choice things to say… and mainly, he wants everyone in the NBA to realize that if they think they've never played with a gay player, that they're a bunch of idiots!

Not only that, but Charles believes that jocks have gotten a bad rap for a lot of years, and that absolutely the NBA is ready for more gay players! He believes that society is more homophobic than teams in locker rooms!

Guess what! We think he's right!

Check out the great interview with Anderson Cooper (above)!!

miss america mallory hagan defends her curvier figure1

A girl's gotta eat, right?!?

Miss America Mallory Hagan recently made an appearance on Anderson Live to defend her new curvier physique, and because she admitted that she likes to eat carbs from time to time, she's NOT apologizing for packing on some pounds!!

The bikini-clad bombshell was spotted in Hawaii with Miss Hawaii Skyler Kamaka earlier this week, and while both women obviously gained weight, Mallory was quick to snub everyone and told guest hosts Tamar Braxton and Jane Velez-Mitchell that she is HUMAN.

She added:

Dr. Sanjay Gupta Talks The New Pope's Health — Is One Lung Bad??

| Filed under: Etc.Anderson CooperHealth

Yesterday after Pope Francis I, aka George Bluth Sr. (example below), was elected, we began hearing that he only had one lung!

Understandably, a lot of people are worried about this — and even Anderson Cooper seems to be concerned. The thing is, though, there probably isn't really anything to worry about… and Dr. Sanjay Gupta confirms that for Anderson when talking about the state of the Pope Francis I's health!

So, no need to worry!

Watch the video (above) to hear it discussed at length if we haven't calmed your nerves!

Anderson Cooper Experiences Big Wave Surfing With Garrett McNamara

| Filed under: Anderson CooperSurfingCrazzzzy

When you look at Anderson Cooper, you don't necessarily see a daredevil stunt man.

But Anderson was really showing his thrill seeker side when he was hanging out with Garrett McNamara for 60 Minutes.

McNamara is a big wave surfer and daredevil, so he took Anderson out on a jet ski, to give him a real taste of what it's like to catch a HUGE wave.

At one point, Anderson asks Garrett to pull off a dangerous move and Garrett hesitates.

So Anderson eggs him on and starts calling him names!!

Being the daredevil he is, Garrett doesn't back down.

Everything works out… sort of. Anderson does sort of end up blind though.

Say whaaaaat??!

Check out the video (above) to see how Anderson Cooper's wild ride goes!
