Every year since 2009, on 2nd May, it is World Goth Day. The official World Goth Day website describes it as “a day where the goth scene gets to celebrate its own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world.”
I’ve always been a bit Gothic (although I suspect some of the more extreme Goths might call me Goth Lite), and adore black clothing, whether period or modern. I suppose with my naturally very pale skin, I was always going to at least look a little Gothic even without trying, but I do love the look and I’m also a fan of quite a bit of the music.
So, here’s to all the Goths out there. I know you’ll all be celebrating the scene and being jubilant about being who you are, because, contrary to popular belief, Goths aren’t always morose. In fact, most of the Goths I’ve known have been some of the happiest people I’ve ever met!
Happy World Goth Day!
