Sean Sasser, whose relationship with the late Pedro Zamora on MTV’s “The Real World: San Francisco” broke cultural barriers on television, has died, his longtime partner told CNN on Thursday.

Sasser, who was 44 and had been HIV positive for 25 years, died from mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer that was diagnosed just last month. He is reported to have passed away in the Washington home he shared with Kaplan.

Actor and gay rights activist Wilson Cruz wrote on Twitter: “My heart breaks. Another beacon of light in our community is darkened tonight with the passing of Sean Sasser.”
