This is the 20th Anniversary of Pedro Zamora's Death

Pedro Zamora was one of the first true faces of AIDS for me. During that season of The Real World, Pedro's story was heartfelt and profound.

I learned a lot through him and because of his presence, he changed the outlook of being gay and HIV positive in the 90s.

Today, is the 20th anniversary of Pedro's death.

His struggle, his fight and life wasn't in vain. Pedro's strength saved lives and inspired a nation.

20 years? that cannot be! I cried when he died, and I wanted to punch puck's face 1000 times for his hatefulness towards pedro.
