Pedro movie premiers tonight!

Sorry for lack of personalization of posts. Still under the weather but don’t want to let this go unmentioned:

PLANNED PARENTHOOD & MTV PRESENT

the WORLD PREMIERE of PEDRO on APRIL 1

WHAT:            Pedro: The Movie – MTV’s World Premiere

In 1994, Pedro Zamora captured the hearts of millions as the first-ever openly gay, HIV-positive main character on MTV’s The Real World: San Francisco.

WHY:               In 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention held its biennial conference on sexually transmitted diseases and announced that at least one out of every four teenage girls in the United States has a STD. It is estimated that nearly 19 million new cases of STDs are reported each year, and that by the age of 25, one in two sexually active young people will contract an STD.  MTV’s film Pedro kicks off a month-long awareness campaign and provides the framework to open honest discussions about the realities of STDs, including HIV/AIDS.  This is a goal shared among Planned Parenthood, MTV and all invested partners.

WHEN:            Wednesday, April 1

8 p.m.

LOCATION:     worldwide – house parties across the country.
