Anderson Cooper Gets GLAAD Award, Madonna Will Present

Madonna GLAAD award

Anderson Cooper will be awarded a prestigious honor by GLADD for his work as an openly gay journalist. Madonna has been confirmed to present the honor at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards this month.

GLADD, a gay advocacy organization, announced today that Anderson Cooper will be this year’s recipient of its Vito Russo Award. The honor is presented to “openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting equality.”

The award is named after Vito Russo, a legendary HIV/AIDS activist. He authored a book about gay individuals in cinema called The Celluloid Closet and was instrumental to the founding of the GLADD organization.

Herndon Graddick, president of the GLADD organization, spoke about Cooper’s contribution to the gay community in a statement:

“By sharing his own experiences as a gay man, Anderson has reminded millions of Americans that LGBT people are part of their everyday lives and an integral part of our cultural fabric.”

Graddick continued:

“He continues to raise the bar and set a new standard for journalists everywhere, and I’m proud to call him a friend.”

GLAAD felt that Madonna, who is friends with Anderson Cooper, would be the ideal person to present the honor. The singer is well known for gay rights and marriage equality, often speaking out against bullying toward members of the LGBT community.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Cooper, who is now openly gay, did not confirm his sexual orientation until last year. After much speculation by media, the journalist allowed an online blogger to publish portions of a personal email in which Cooper stated the following:

“The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.”

Madonna will present Anderson Cooper with the Vito Russo Award in a GLAAD ceremony set to take place on March 16.

    He should date Andy Cohen. I think they'd make a cute couple.

    Anderson Cooper has such dignity. Why her to present him the award? I truly do like her music but come one, she has no dignity nor grace. What's next: Lady Gaga giving out Nobel Peace Award? Just kooky…

  3. Bill Lapinskas

    Poor little rich kid, comes out to boost his ratings and get an award for it.

    Do you know how to read or are you just looking to whine about something today?

    AMBUSH CURES HIV/AIDS.

    Apostle Mishe

    Sir / Madam,

    For the past 10 years of study of Ambush. a Palm plant extract that if effective in curing HIV.

    Name of Plant; Palm.

    Name of ingredient: Ambush.

    Molecular weight 640.
    (similar to the sequisulfides).

    Where found: In and around the areas of South Florida where uranium waste was dumped in the 1920's from the nuclear programme that has now leaked out into the water system. A specie of the PALM plant has picked up this waste to be the valuable AMBUSH.

    Chemical compd; Uranium isotope (cus.n) Grayish white soft metallic compound NOT found in chemistry books.

    Uses: Antiviral DRUG..Ambush.

    Found to "KILL" the HIV virus when given in a dose of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days at a known concentration.

    Mode of action.. Ambush kills the HIV virus by causing the viral shell to rupture. In the lymph system Ambush produces "natural radioactivity" that "kills" the virus that 'hides' in the lymph system. This crosses the blood-brain barrier since the 'patients' claim that they are able to see, hear and think more clearly after taking Ambush.

    Viral Loads…This decreases from 100,000 to 'undetectable' in 21 days….. but I have had patients VL go to 'undetectable ' in 5 days.

    SIDE EFFECTS / EFFECTS.
    1. After 5 to 7 days of treatment, patients MAY complain of HEADACHES.
    2. After 5 to 7 days male patients experience an increase in erection.
    3. Stool becomes soft and REGULAR.
    4. Patients c/o being WARM in the trunk area mainly at night when lying down.

    Toxicology……Before administering to any person a complete toxicological analysis was done to include, arsenic, barbiturates and NO KNOWN poisons or harmful substances to mankind were found.

    Systems/Organs

    Skin…becomes clean, smooth and free of eczema or other say they have small eczema patches in the first week that go away by the third week.

    Excretion

    Since this is a very LARGE molecule it is excreted relatively unchanged via urine and feces.

    SEROREVERSION

    After 149 days the patents revert to being HIV NEGATIVE after finishing a course in Ambush hence no one goes public to say they WERE HIV positive.
    Pharmacology of Ambush on the GUT of an end stage AIDS person.

    It is known that late stage AIDS patients posses a high level of the virus in the GUT which should include the entire GI tract from stomach to rectum. Here the virus is found in the lining and this is difficult for ARV's because these are the areas needed by the ARV's to enter the blood supply. There is not a high enough blood level returning back to the stomach lining hence the virus remains in high concentration.

    This causes the person's appetite to decrease which causes a spiraling downhill of the body.

    When Ambush is taken in the liquid form, it is slightly basic and forms a stable compound in the acidic stomach.The Ambush compound is close to the stomach lining to exert the "natural radioactivity" effect which kills the virus in the stomach. Here the entire mid section feels very warm and sometimes feverish. The infected stomach lining with the dead areas is then passed out as a black slime in the stool. This usually happens about day 4 while on an Ambush regime of 60 ml three times daily for 21 days, wherein the person has a large bowel movement.

    After the bowel movement, the person becomes extremely hungry and eats TWO to THREE times a normal serving. Here I usually recommend cornmeal porridge with butter or cooking oil as a prevention against malnutrition and add a daily multivitamin. By day 10 the stomach has recovered and the person eats normally.

    THE CHALLENGE

    The challenge is to find a Virologist, or Biologist of HIV Researcher who is willing to put some Ambush in a Human culture medium infected with the HIV virus, incubate with proper controls and report their findings to the world.
