People always ask me if I am Goth. I like to wear black and I also LOVE my KISS t-shirt. It's time for me to admit that I am Goth, but I am scared to. A friend of mine is Goth too - she is tired of hiding it and wants to let the world know. I wish I was as confident as her. Can you help me tell people what I really am please! #1 KISS FAN
Dear #1 Kiss Fan
If you act Goth and you dress Goth, then I am sure people already assume you're Goth. Admitting it will only make you feel better; like you finally own your identity. Be proud of who you are! Also, if your friend were so confident and brave she would have already "come out." I'll bet she's waiting to follow in your footsteps. When you are ready, start by telling the people who you love and trust the most. Be prepared to explain to them what being Goth means to you as well since I am sure they won't exactly know. Good Luck.
