I've always wondered what happened to Sean after the Real World. He and Pedro made me open up my mind and heart about gay love. They were a beautiful couple. I'm glad to hear Sean went on to find happiness after Pedro's passing. My prayers go out to his family.

What great guys both Pedro and Sean were. I was heartbroken when Pedro passed and now Sean all this time later. May they reunite in heaven.

Was he able to live HIV positive for almost 20 years? Thats wonderful. Such a blessing that he got to enjoy 20 more years of his life battling such a horrible illness. Best wishes to his friends and family.

Sean and Pedro were a great couple and a positive image on the show. They were, unfortunately harassed from time-to-time. Glad to hear Sean found a new love. May the both Sean and Pedro now rest in peace. Condolences to the family and friends.
