About World Goth Day
World Goth Day originated in the United Kingdom in 2009. BBC Radio 6 was looking at a number of music subcultures throughout a week in May, including Goth music. Goth DJs Cruel Britannia and Martin Oldgoth declared it Goth day. They decided that May 22nd would be the day each year to observe world goth day.
The observance spread outside the United Kingdom, with a website being initiated to coordinate and promote events worldwide.Find out more
