A baby bat is a person who has discovered Goth, but is unfamiliar with the scene. They often listen to Goth music, and have distinctive ‘Goth’ tastes (an interest in the dark poetry and literature, macabre acadaemia, a love for the Victorian/Georgian societies) but haven’t yet become acclimatized to being non-mainstream.
Unfortunately some people use the term in a derogatory way which we think is absolutely horrid. We should be encouraging youngsters interested in our subculture.
Baby bats grow up into Goths. Without them we would be a dying breed.
We love our baby bats!
Think the Goth Subculture is for you?
Do you like Goth music?
Do you love the macabre and darker side of life
Do you consider yourself a Dark Soul
You are more in-touch with your emotions
Do you like classic literature from Dark Soul writers like Edgar Allan Poe?
Do you like the fashion that goes along with the Goth subculture?
Do you find beauty in dark artistic pieces?
Every person is different. We all won’t be interested in the exact same things. Just because you don’t fit all the different aspects of the Goth subculture, does not mean you aren’t Goth.
Try things out. Experiment. Find yourself.
