|aIn this memoir in graphic novel form, the author relates his friendship with an HIV-positive AID Sactivist while they were roommates during the filming ofthe MTV show "Real World: San Francisco". As a speakerand educator, aguest on many talk shows (including Oprah), and when his tragic death receivedfront-page coverage in the press, Pedro taught a generation that AIDS was nota punishment for moral defects or a mere killer that reduced humans to wraiths. Rather, he showed how those afflicted with the disease could live and love nobly with intelligence, humor, and great humanity.
