The world was changed when beloved The Real World cast member, Pedro Zamora, past away from complication from AIDS 20 years ago today. He, by many accounts, helped put a face to HIV/AIDS when he appeared on the breakthrough reality television program. Zamora, who was born in Cuba and left in 1980, died in 1994 from progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy just one year after he met his partner Sean Sasser. The couple married in the first-of-its-kind televised same-sex commitment ceremony.

You can watch a retrospective of Pedro’s time on MTV after the jump…
