While it’s true that most goths prefer night time, World Goth Day lets them parade the black look proudly in sunlight.
Goths are often met with criticism and fear. They’re just like everyone else and judging someone based on the way they look means missing out on getting to know some great people. Because of the stigma attached to being a goth, many young people have struggled to get friends and family to accept it. They have to fight to maintain who they are in the face of the pressure in society to conform.
