The goth scene is home to me, though I haven’t always worn the costume my obsessions have always been the same. Back before I knew a name for it, I was wearing Victoriana and listening to Bauhaus. I have met many of my friends in dancing clubs, and this is one subculture where you can embrace middle age gracefully. I’m happy to be here, whatever Goth Day means (it’s certainly not an invention of Hallmark…yet), it’s a chance for me to shout out to all the other darklings I call my friends– a gleeful carrion call.
