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.

“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).

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.”
