I contributed a story on Latino AIDS activist, Pedro Zamora for Windy City Times – AIDS @ 30 series.
Pedro Zamora was a huge influence on my young adult life and I am honored to highlight his legacy as part of this project.
The AIDS at 30 series was nominated for a 2012 GLAAD award for Outstanding Newspaper Article.
“There is not one second of my day that I am not aware that I am HIV-positive. I don’t want to forget that I have AIDS and I don’t want you to forget that I have AIDS. You have to understand AIDS is part of my life. It’s my reality. It’s who I am.” – Pedro Zamora
