Sean Sasser, Pedro Zamora's Widower, Dead At 44

Sean Sasser, a heroic AIDS activist who pierced pop-culture as Pedro Zamora's partner on 1994's Real World: San Francisco, has died at age 44 of a rare lung cancer.

Sean married Pedro in the second to last episode of the Real World's third season after, along with Pedro, bringing a realistic and compassionate window into life with HIV/AIDS to TV rooms across the country. Pedro passed away in November 1994 from complications related to AIDS.

Sean was living in Washington D.C. with his husband Michael Kaplan, head of AIDS United, at the time of his death. RIP.
