When did you come out the Goth closet? (If you didn't then simply discuss the topic)I was never in a closet. I simply wore what I liked and never cared much about other people's opinions. I listened to the music I liked and wore more eyeliner than was good for me, but my mum never said anything about this. I was not very nice during puberty, so maybe these things were not on her radar? But she was always nice to the metal friends I brought home (which sometimes didn't like showering and looked rather scary), never complained about any clothes I wore and even allowed me on festivals when I was young. My mum was the best!
So what can I say about coming out of the closet? I'd like to give some tips what to do, but I don't have any. I never had to do this and since my environment was very tolerant, I never heard of anyone who did not dare to live his/her life the way they wanted... I can only link to Gothic Charm School, where the Lady of the Manners has many posts centered around this topic: Link
