Mondo Guerra is among the breakout stars from the reality competition program Project Runway. A Mexican-American fashion designer and gay man from Denver, he was one of the finalists of the show's eighth season, in 2010. He revealed his status during the 10th challenge, and disclosed that he had kept his status a secret for 10 years. Guerra went on to win the All-Stars edition of the show in 2012.
Since Runway, Mondo has become a prominent HIV/AIDS advocate and activist. Working with pharmaceutical company Merck, Guerra started a campaign called "Project I Design," which encourages people living with HIV to work with their doctors to tailor their individual treatment plans. He unveiled a special one-of-a-kind dress on World AIDS Day 2012 that was inspired by people's messages at the 2012 United States Conference on AIDS. Mondo Guerra continues to design, to live an openly positive life, and to advocate for HIV-positive people.
