Pedro Zamora

Born in Havana, this former Real World cast member was one of the first openly gay men with AIDS on television. Zamora used reality TV as a platform to educate the masses about living with AIDS and was recognized by Bill Clinton for his activism. Sadly, he died in 1994 at the age of 22.
