The true story of Pedro Zamora.
Celebrity. Activist. Icon.
In 1994, Bunim/Murray Productions made the ground-breaking decision to cast openly gay, HIV-positive Cuban-American Pedro Zamora as part of MTV s The Real World: San Francisco. Zamora s time in The Real World house on Lombard Street brought a face to the AIDS crisis; and U.S. President Bill Clinton credited Zamora with personalizing and humanizing those with the disease.
PEDRO celebrates the extraordinary life of Pedro Zamora; a young man who when he found out he was HIV positive at 17, made the courageous decision to dedicate the rest of his life to speaking out about his condition in an attempt to raise awareness about the disease in his community. His appearance on The Real World brought his story and his message to MTV s youthful audience and beyond; and when Zamora s health began to deteriorate in late 1994 (after he left the show), it became front page news nationwide, and his death at age 22 provoked a worldwide outpouring of grief. Stars Alex Loynaz and Justina Machado (Six Feet Under)
