This month we are going to be diving into the sub-subculture of the Christian Goth community. Goth itself is a-theistic in that it makes no positive religious claims, one can ascribe themselves to any religious system or eschew them altogether without an impact on their goth identity; so it’s not abnormal to find goths who are catholic, protestant or any other flavor of Christian belief. That said, there exists a community of people who explicitly call themselves Christian Goths, a label which denotes often (in my experience) conservative evangelical ideals merged with a goth aesthetic. But how does this group of people fit into the broader goth culture and where do their values, norms, and social behaviors diverge from those of the broader goth culture? My guests and I will be discussing this, our personal experiences as Christian Goths and more on this episode!
