Happy #WorldGothDay! The top two shots are me at about 22 (1995) at my first DJing gig at City Lights in Anchorage, AK; bottom left is at about 25 (1997) at Gigs Music Theater in Anchorage; bottom right is at 45 (2018) in “undercover goth” work mode.
Remember: goth has no age limit, there’s no such thing as Real Goth™, and gatekeepers in any community are just jerks.
