Back then: He met Martinez at a rave, who invited him to be in a fashion show, which led to his immersion in the scene. His style mixed horror and glamour. "I always loved the grand entrance to each party, and dancing with my friends," he says, "and then getting so fucked up and finally falling apart."
Present: After years as a photographer, Perez now studies film at Los Angeles City College.
Wildest memory: Perez and others reminisced about parties with map points: there was a specified destination where you bought your ticket, and then found out the location for the party (which hopefully hadn't yet been broken up by police). Often, they would sell extra tickets provided by promoters to ravers for half price.
