Today is World AIDS Day, but Bono made an appearance yesterday on The Daily Show to begin the commemoration. During his interview, he teased a big announcement that would likely come from President Obama today during an event in honor of the special day.
You can also find Bono and his fashion-statement-making sunglasses on the TIME website (and in the magazine) and with an op-ed in today’s New York Times. In that article, he talks about the hopelessness that greeted an HIV-positive diagnosis a decade ago. “Yet today, here we are, talking seriously about the ‘end’ of this global epidemic,” he writes. Wow.
