On February 12, 2021, Christopher “Carlos” Perez transitioned from this world. Carlos was well known in the Philadelphia Gay Community from Woody’s to the Bike Stop. Carlos was a constant presence at weekly Two-Step nights. For so many of us Carlos was a dear friend that was more like a kid brother. Carlos was one of the kindest souls you could meet. If you went to Two-Step he was always ready to dance or teach someone to dance. From rollerblading Center City to running around New York City, he never lost his joy and youthfulness.
