Advice for Non-Goths Youtube Playlists

I spend a lot of time on this blog directly talking to Goths, but based on some of the e-mails I get there aren't just spooky types watching my blog. Between spouses, friends, and family, it seems there are plenty of people confused as to how to interact with the Goth in their life. So, I thought I would set up a Youtube playlist of the best videos from Goths to non-Goths about what the subculture is and is not and how to accept the darkness (or just not be rude about it.)

What is your best piece of advice for non-Goths? Or, how do you usually explain Goth to someone who doesn't understand it?


  1. I have to interact with lots of people who have no idea about what goth is, so I sometimes have to explain why I wear black, why I do my makeup like that etc. The way I do it is trying to find a common piece of knowledge between me and that person, for example do you know The Cure? If yes, then it goes tremendously easy from there. ;)

  2. I just don't explain it. I just tell them this is what I dress like and this is who I am, act like its completely normal and they are the weird one for asking patronising questions or making a big deal about it :)

  3. I explain it as morbidly beautiful things.
