“The stigma involved in people coming out and saying they’re HIV-positive is still an underground thing, it’s still a shame-based thing until we can get everybody tested and people to come out and be role models to people who have HIV, then we’re still battling against this disease,” Mr. John said.

Established in 1992, the Elton John AIDS Foundation continues its global humanitarian efforts to help raise money for a variety of services, including prevention programs, campaigns to end the stigma and discrimination surrounding AIDS, and treatment, care and support services for people living with the disease.

Hulk Hogan files suits over release of sex tape

Former pro wrestler Hulk Hogan sued a disc jockey, the DJ’s ex-wife and a gossip website Monday after a sex tape involving Mr. Hogan and the woman was posted online.

Mr. Hogan said in two lawsuits that he had consensual sex with his best friend’s wife, Heather Clem, about six years ago in the Clemses’ home, but he did not know he was being recorded, The Associated Press reports.

“Mr. Hogan had a reasonable expectation of his privacy, just as all Americans have a reasonable expectation of their privacy in their bedrooms,” attorney Charles Harder said.

The video was posted on the online gossip site Gawker. Mr. Hogan is seeking $100 million in damages from the New York-based media company, which declined comment.

It’s unclear who gave the video to Gawker.

In the suit against the Clemses, Mr. Hogan claimed the video caused “severe and irreparable injury which cannot be adequately compensated by monetary damages.” Mr. Hogan is seeking the rights to the video in both lawsuits.

It’s not clear whether Mr. Hogan and Bubba “the Love Sponge” Clem are still friends. The Clemses have since divorced.

Mr. Hogan acknowledged on various TV talk shows recently that he had sex with Mrs. Clem while he was married to Linda Hogan. The Hogans also have divorced.
