Bono Awarded George W. Bush Medal for HIV Work

Former President George W. Bush himself presented Bono with the George W. Bush medal for Distinguished Leadership on April 19 for his recognized efforts to help combat HIV and AIDS. For decades, Bono has been vocally adamant about putting forth the effort to ensure that the United States does its part in controlling the worldwide epidemic.

A candid video was recently released showing Bono accepting the award during a sit-down panel in celebration of the fifth anniversary of The Bush Center in Dallas, Texas. World humanitarian causes are a big part of Bono’s ongoing philanthropy, which includes battling HIV and AIDS.

Bono talked about the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and understands how critical it is for the continued safety of the world.

"It's a huge honor to [win] this award, and I'm here to honor your leadership on the greatest health intervention in the history of medicine," the singer-songwriter responded. "That's what I'm not sure people understand: 13 million from PEPFAR, and if you add the Global Relief Fund, it's probably been 21 million lives have been saved by this work that you began and led and I'm here to honor that." It’s certainly sobering to estimate just how many lives may have been gained or extended through these efforts.

Bush responded by reserving some of the credit for Bono. "The truth of the matter is, [PEPFAR] never would have made it out of Congress had you not been engaged,” Bush admitted. “The first time I met you, you knew more statistics, like you were coming right out of the CIA." Bono wouldn’t let Bush or others shy away from the horrifying statistics of the spread of HIV in third world countries.

It’s really quite astonishing how involved in politics Bono has become over the years. During the George W. Bush administration, Bono met with then-National Security Advisor Condoleeza Rice to promote funding for AIDS. He also met with then-Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill to discuss similar matters.

In the video, Bono joked that he might get fired from U2 because he left the rest of his bandmates in Montreal, Canada as they rehearsed for another tour in order to receive the award.

On March 14, 2002, Bono reportedly met with then-President George W. Bush to discuss HIV and AIDS. Bono seized the opportunity to try and persuade Bush to do more in providing HIV and AIDS resources to poorer parts of the world. According to The Dallas Morning News, Bono said that Barbara Bush is the person responsible for finally making HIV and AIDS a priority for George W. Bush. But also Bono played a part in making HIV and AIDS a priority for U.S. presidents.

Bono also implied that President Donald Trump isn’t doing enough. "Tackling a virus like this, if you're not as fast or faster than the virus, it's outrunning you," he explained. "So all the progress that we made over the years can be undone," referring to the dismantling of federal HIV programs. Bono also expressed his disapproval of President Trump’s policies on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Bono’s efforts in using the power of his pedestal to bring attention to important HIV and AIDS matters is finally being recognized, nearly two decades after becoming more involved. (Pub 4/23)

Special Features of GayTies

All About Our Chat Rooms
Of course, ANY member can go into the chat rooms at ANY time; it's a free gay chat room service. You do not have to be a premium member to use it. All you do is go into chat by clicking on the “Chat” link in the green header. As soon as you click to enter the chat room, that link changes to a red flashing “Chatting Now.” This is so everyone will know you are in there and they can enter also, if they wish. The book icon you see at the bottom of the chat window explains the simple features about chatting.

There are three popular ways to start a chat:

1. The first is spontaneous. Whenever you see the flashing “Chatting Now,” go in there.

2. Another good way is to arrange it. If you want to chat with someone you see on line, message them to meet you in chat, either right then, or a set a pre-arranged time later. You can also message someone who is not on line, and set a pre-arranged time to meet in chat. Some members will use our personal Ads to meet guys for chat.

3. The other way is to start an international group chat. Here is how to do that.

Here are the 3 steps to start an online chat group session:

First click on “Last 100 logins” green link on the home page and scroll through the profiles to see who is currently online.

Second, type out (or copy and paste) a short invite such as: “I am creating a group chat session in 5 minutes, please click on 'Chat Rooms' and meet us there.”

Third, send this message to ALL those gay chat lovers currently “on line” who selected “Cyber / chat buddies” as one of their interests.” Usually you see about a couple dozen members who are currently on line, AND interested in chat. Use the "Send message" link under each member's photo and simply paste that message invite, and send it.

Do this sort of quickly so everyone gets the invite within a few minutes or so. In group chats, do not get selective. Message everyone you see online.

And …. that’s it. You are done. Chat with any of them, or let them chat with each other. It may be helpful for you to explain some features of chat, while you are in chat.

We suggest that before you send out your group invites, go into the chat room first and click on everything. Get a little bit familiar with the rooms, how to have private “whisper” chats, and especially click on the book icon, which contains very simple chat instructions.

It is not critical, but the rooms are for different subjects of chat. People can chat in the Lobby, or go into a subject room to be with those of similar interest. The Kinky Basement is for guys into kink talk as well as beating off, the Boner Room is for all kinds of jo scenes, and the Friendship Lounge is for guys seeking a non-sexual chat with cyber friends. And, you may see other rooms which members have created, because you can create your own room, for your own purpose.

What to chat about? Well, of course, all your erotic personal stuff. But also about gay clips on Gayties. Gay videos are a hot social network topic here, as well as kink and romance. We ask everyone to be courteous and patient as we all get to learn more about how chat works. Finally, we suggest one other thing, … be adventurous and have fun.
