The widower and AIDS activist Sean Sasser has passed away. You may have seen him as the boyfriend, turned husband, turned widower to MTV The Real World’s Pedro Zamora. Have a look at some of the inspirational words people have expressed over Twitter in memory of Sasser.
Pedro Zamora and Sean Sasser taught me that love is love. They were the first gay people I “knew.” Goodbye, Sean. – http://t.co/wXcd2qYLme

Sean Sasser died. He, Pedro, Judd & Pam were such an education/inspiration for me as a teenage gay boy just coming to out in a scary world.
