How many years have you known the Goth Subculture and the Goth Scene?

I was a Goth before there was a Goth subculture that I knew of. I'm sort of a proto-goth. If you want a number, we'll say over 20 years.

How much do you know about NYC?

Very well. As well as anyone can who grew up here.

What kind of hobbies are you into?

Reading. Afternoon tea. Museums. Black and white films. Crochet. Cooking.

Why do you believe yoursef to be goth?

Because I own more dark clothing than most people. Because i make ginger bat cookies for Christmas. Because my mother once actually asked me if I was a vampire, when I was an adult. Because I wrote bad poetry as a teen and wore dark clothing all the time. Because I think corsets and collars are evening wear. Because beating people is fun, and getting tied up and beaten is even better. Because ordinary people freak me out.

Are you single or already in a relationship?

I'm in a long-distance relationship with a corp-punk. He's ok with my having sex with other people though. However, it doesn't happen very often. Both of us look 'normal.' We think that's hilarious.

Introduction

Corpgoth, not into clubbing (I find it too noisy); more into gothic folk music and spooky early rock and roll than most goth. I also like some industrial, afternoon tea, and having an excuse to dress up.
