Anderson Cooper & Matthew Morrison Couple Up At Elton John AIDS Fund Benefit 2015!

Anderson Cooper holds hands with his handsome boyfriend Benjamin Maisani while hitting the red carpet at the 2015 Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Enduring Vision Benefit held at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday (November 2) in New York City.

The 47-year-old CNN anchor and his partner were joined by Matthew Morrison and his girlfriend Renee Puente, Kiefer Sutherland, Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Matt Lauer, Andy Cohen, Padma Lakshmi, Cicely Tyson, Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Lucci, Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria, Michael Stipe, Judith Light, and Elton John and his love David Furnish.

“I’m proud of what we’ve done, but the journey is not complete. I won’t be proud until the journey is complete,” Elton said at the event (via Fox).

“We’ve come so far with treatment that actual treatment is prevention. You can reduce the load virus so low now in someone’s body that the risk of passing it on to someone else is practically zero,” David added. “What hasn’t changed is the mindset associated with knowing your status and testing and then living a positive happy life if you are HIV-positive and staying on the medications.”
