Pedro

24 01 2010

This weekend I watched the movie Pedro about openly HIV-positive and gay icon Pedro Zamora. He captured millions of hearts all over America during his time in MTV’s The Real World San Francisco back in 1994. The movie is from the same screenwriter as Milk, Dustin Lance Black, so destined to be great and it is. I do not often cry during movies but this was one of those movies. It is so inspirational, emotional and well acted. As a bonus the DVD also has 3 episodes from the Real World to give people like me who had not seen the series(only saw Real World Hawaii with the crazy drunk girl) an idea of how it was. The actors are all a little prettier, but definitely look a lot like the real people in the series. I think this movie is a must-see for every one in the gay community and it would not hurt straight people to see it as well.
