Pedro Zamora of MTVs "The Real World": One of the first openly gay men with AIDS to be portrayed in popular media. Born in the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, Pedro immigrated to the United States when he was a child with his immediate family. Pedro discovered he had contracted AIDS his junior year of high school, when trying to donate blood. Immediately, Pedro devoted his life to being an AIDS educator, lecturing across the country. The Wall Street Journal wrote a front page on the then 19-year old, resulting in television interviews with Geraldo Rivera, Phil Donahue, and Oprah Winfrey. Zamora became part of the cast of the 1994 MTV's The Real World: San Francisco. Zamora was recognized by President Bill Clinton for his work as an AIDS activist. Pedro died on Nov. 11, 1994, the day after the final episode of The Real World. 

Princess Diana at HIV/AIDS Conference 1993: Princess Diana continued her HIV/AIDS advocacy work and spoke at the opening address of the 2nd International Conference on HIV in Children and Mothers in Edinburgh.
"By the year two thousand, only seven years from now - even the most conservative estimates predict there will be more than thirty million people worldwide with HIV - equivalent to more than half the population of the United Kingdom".Diana - Princess of Wales, 1993
Mary Fisher "A Whisper of AIDS": 

"Tonight, I represent an AIDS community whose members have been reluctantly drafted from every segment of American society. Though I am white and a mother, I am one with a black infant struggling with tubes in a Philadelphia hospital. Though I am female and contracted this disease in marriage, and enjoy the warm support of my family, I am one with the lonely gay man sheltering a flickering candle from the cold wind of his family 's rejection.

This is not a distant threat; it is a present danger. The rate of infection is increasing fastest among women and children. Largely unknown a decade ago, AIDS is the third leading killer of young-adult Americans today-but it won't be third for long. Because, unlike other diseases, this one travels. Adolescents don't give each other cancer or heart disease because they believe they are in love. But HIV is different And we have helped it along. We have killed each other-with our ignorance, our prejudice, and our silence."
