Storyline

In 1994 Pedro Zamora was the first HIV-positive homosexual to appear in a reality show on MTV. The audience of 'The Real World: San Francisco' identified easily with this intelligent, good-looking Latino. His presence on the show also meant that audiences in the United States and abroad had to engage with the topic of AIDS. A screen adaptation of Pedro Zamora's life: his childhood in Havana as the youngest of eight children, his emigration to the United States, his hard work as an AIDS activist, his appearance on 'The Real World' as well as the short time that was left to him subsequently. Written by Warsaw Film Festival

Well Made TV Movie about HIV and Reality TV
15 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie did a good job of portraying the realities of HIV in the early 90's while showing some restraint. The actor Loyenz gave a believable, strong performance as Pedro. In the early days of MTV's reality show the Real World it didn't take much to become celebrity and Pedro used that to educate and promote the HIV/AIDS causes as he had before joining the cast. Sadly like so many in those times he died of his affliction but not before leaving his mark on not only family and friends but a nation and my hope is this film reminds us all of what came before and what we still must do, safe sex for gays and straights, helps prevent the spread of STD's, HIV, Aids and prevents unwanted pregnancy.
