World Goth Day

Hugo Simberg 1890

I don’t know how goths organized to the point where this was declared a day of unity. Goths are a lot like cats that way.

They argue amongst themselves most of the time.

They range from all black everything to pastel-clad lolitas with parasols.

There are pagan goths, atheist goths and Christian goths. There are Islamic goths.

Anarchists, socialists, communists and monarchists.

The unity is in living a subculture that is also counter-culture, in being visibly different.
