Upwardly mobile goths

Goths are middle class according to a Sussex University study and are likely to end up as lawyers, doctors or architects. They are also likely to carry on dressing in a Gothic fashion and retain an interest in literature and art in adult life. Despite my teenage foray into Gothdom (the land that fashion forgot) I am neither a lawyer, doctor nor an architect; what happened? Perhaps it’s because I was never brave enough to get tattoos or piercings, or dye my hair.
