MTV casts Pedro as a 'Real World' roommate and Pedro tries to find the right moment to tell the house about being HIV-positive.
I have one very BIG WISH to MTV ->>>> PLEASE BRING THIS FILM ALSO TO GERMANY and the rest of the WORLD to show all people -> What is HIV and AIDS .... some people are not nowing anything about it !!
I am also infected with HIV - and every time when I think there is no GOAL for my life anymore I look this film ... THEN I feel -> There is a GOAL - HELP ALL PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HIV AND AIDS !!!!!! - Thanks GOD for such a person like PEDRO - You are helping other persons to find the WAY OF LIFE !
i just seen the whole season now have a new feelings about aids and the people that is suffering it and hiv please make a dvd of his story.also could tell me how to continue to spread his mesage. Pedro Rest In Peace!
I watched the whole season before watching this...and it's much better...i love it all..xD..R.i.p. Pedro!!..
This movie is in the same genre as others like Walk The Line, Selena, & Ray. PLEASE BRING THIS MOVIE TO DVD!!!!!!
as much of an a** as puck was he NEVER wore a swastika shirt. . . he was a total jerk but it NEVER showed that. I totally dis-liked him but i think MTV went overboard with the shirt. . . they definitely would of showed it on the episodes if he did wear it, it would of made awesome television. . but he didn't. .
i am so touched to see so many nice comments about this wonderful man. Its so nice to see acceptance and love, not words of hate. I work at the LGBT Center in San Fran and when people ask for places to get tested it breaks my heart knowing of the risk and how scary it must be. This movie is so inspirational and knowing how accepting the generations are getting as we grow and learn to open our minds souls and hearts to let it in love.. makes me so proud.
Pedro, you will forever be a hero. Rest in peace.
sully, those are actors.
Wow. I never cried so much in a movie before. Even though I didn't know too much about him, I had heard of him before. I was 4 when he died, so I didn't know too much. But after watching this and The Real World: San Fran, I feel like I do. You almost feel his pain, not physically but emotionally. His emotional pain. It was so heartbreaking. I'm openly gay myself and thanks to him, AIDS is no longer just known as being a "gay disease." Anyone can get it. And he made people realize that. I couldn't imagine going through what he did. And being mexican myself I also felt like I could relate to him even more. What an amazing movie. I hope they put it on itunes or something. =)
I live in San Francisco and I remember watching this season and getting totally sucked into it. As a native I was very proud that MTV picked San Francisco. I recognized Pam and Judd right away but is that really Sean and Rachel? It's very hard to tell. I truelly wish that MTV and B&M would release this movie and all the MTV Tribute to Pedro as well as the "original" broadcast episodes with all the original music as a box set. This movie takes me way back to a time where AIDS was the fear that "all" San Francisco young people gay and straight shared. Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden and White Zombie were the soundtrack to the drama that we watched smitten with envy and adoration. I hope that MTV gives us the full package and donates a portion of all sales to The Pedro Zamora Fund if it still exists and continues the work that he felt so passionate about. I got 50-100 bucks for something like that.
This was great, very moving to one's soul.... I wish I could make a difference in the world he has! =)
After watching the movie many times, I was omg (in tears). I didn't cry but in the heart I did. I kinda did remember a little about him but during '94, I was super young, but did remember hearing about Pedro. Watching his personality made me smile and he has a good heart. No, a great heart! I've thought about this story from if my boyfriend was still bi, then what could happen to him. But thank goodness, he's not! He's straight. It's a damn shame how a lovable personality like Pedro could die like that. Pedro, you will always be remembered in mine and everyone's hearts whom known you, seen you, grown with you and to people who's starting to fall in love with you now. Rest in peace my hero.
i feel that he was a GREAT person and deserved to have had this movie so people can truly see how it is to live with HIV and how it effect the people around them.
Remembering back I think of how Perdo came into everyones life back in 1994, he touched us thru Real World and opened up alot of peoples eyes. He tried to educate us and make us aware of something people didn't want to talk about. He gave us a gift back then, he gave us a insight into his life. Today in 2009 I never thought I would find myself in Pedros shoes, HIV Positive. I only hope I can open peoples eyes as Pedro did. Hopefully I can make people see that there is no sterotype, people of all types can be affected by HIV. Straight, gay, rich or poor, it knows no bounderies.
I usually do not comment on a website but, after watching the movie I had to sign up and post a comment. The movie was great! I didn't want to watch it at first because I knew it would be sad but, being an avid Real Worlder fan since day one I decided to watch it. It was great! Informative! and well, Real! the casting on this movie is great. the person that played puck as dead on. I don't remember Puck ever saying to Pedro "Aids Boy" while on the show. I would have remembered such a cruel thing!
Pedro was the reason I kept tuned in to the Real World shows. I know the movie was going to be sad...Sure enough, I almost used up my box of tissues from crying. I sure do miss Pedro...the movie was great & yes...it is not fair to die the way he did....but he has done so much good and opened a lot of eyes. RIP, Pedro Zamora.
this movie was so moving. i LOVED it! It really does make your eyes open and look at the big picture of AIDS. i swear i cried so much throughout the movie. i hope this does come out on DVD!!
Great movie.. I am from Pedro's era and remember first hand the difficulties of not only being gay during those times, but how HIV-AIDS was affecting the LGBT communities around the world. He really did become a hero, or an icon of that era, mainly because being gay, especially openly gay, was lacking societal acceptance in its entirety during those times. He was able to put a face on what it was to be gay with HIV-AIDS and showed the world HIV-AIDS has no one face. Thanks for sending the message back out, MTV. Its a message we should never tire seeing spread around the world.
i seen the movie i think pedro was and still a brave man mtv should show more movies like this one to teach the youth and teens about safe sex and hiv and aids.can if posable to get a copy if the Real World San FRANISCO IN 1994 i never seen it i became a fan last year 2008.
