Definitely had to make a part 2 of my post about goth countries and places. It received a lot of interesting response giving some more evidence of how's hard or easy is to be a Goth in certain countries! Read through!
The Netherlands score pretty high I think. High tolerance for homosexuality, oddness and diversity in general. Plus, there are tons of alternative shops, festivals and gatherings. I worked in a regular shop looking fairly extremely goth at 20. Nowadays I can wear my new rocks to the office.
Here in Western Australia it scores pretty high for acceptance (As far as I've seen) anyone can wear anything they like and hardly even get stared at. :)But as for Gothic clubs, stores...Hardly any, so we score 1/10 on that probably. :(
it is hard to be goth in Latvia. Firts, we just don['t have any gothic shops. Boots we buy at tatoo salon, hairdye too. And we have few organisations in biggest cities (also other people thinks we're weird) ;) so clothes we buy in internet or sew ourselves, it is hard to walk by street without hurting words
As a Brit who visits Germany for Mera Luna, I have to say I find the German scene a lot more welcoming.
Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of nice Goths in England, but there is also a degree of bitchiness towards younger folk that there doesn't seem to be in Germany.
I think the problem of elder goths not being very kind to the newbies is everywhere. I'm actually working on a post about this.
Melbourne, Australia, as well as many other major cities here, have infamously fantastic Goth scenes. xxx Lily
Anonymous commenter said a very important thruth about the United States:
Not all parts of the US is accepting. There are parts that are very conservative as a whole, and even in more liberal places we have alot of immigrants from countries that are not very tolerant and don't want to fully embrace the freedoms of the US.
hi! im from Romania and isnt a good place to be a goth here. society in general is pretty conservative and suspicious of everything out of the norm. there are few dark/alternative clubs, and those that are usually focus on metal not goth/post-punk.
GothicDivine magazine was actually born on Stardoll..a web site where you can dress paperdolls, make your own clothes designs and make-up in your own style and create forums where you can meet other people. After almost 2 years of activity BallerinaDark and the most active members in GothicDivine club, decided to open up an official blog where they could gather all that has been written and share it with the world...and here it is!
