A new goth friend I made told me I lied about being goth

Okay so I live in a urban area so I have always been the "emo girl" in my neighborhood. My family is hispanic/black so I grew up with a lot of them telling me "you just want to be into that white people s***"

So when I went to college and finally met another goth girl I was ecstatic. She came up to me and we hit it off and actually didn't talk about music taste deeply till a few days later.

So the mitski concert happened and I went to it because I like her. My friend had saw that post and texted me that she thought I was goth. I told her I was, but I like other music artist to.

Then she started asking if I've gone to a goth concert or a goth club and I said no. I'm like 19 my mom would never let me go to a club. Also I thought you couldn't go to a club under the age of 21. I'm so confused. Plus apparently since I've gone to other concerts for my other music taste that I'm not serious about being goth.

Anyway she told me that I should stick to calling myself alternative and not lying to people about me being goth.

So I'll be honest goth music is not my top genre atm. It's in my top 5 though. I listen to punk,metal,rock, indie AND goth music.

Can I not listen to other music and go to non-goth concerts?

Like I would go to a goth concert, but twin tribes isn't coming to my state nor city. Which is most likely the only goth artist who I like who can come over to my city.

Idk I guess I'm just looking for some advice and maybe some validation.

I really wanted to make a friend who didn't listen to rap/hip-hop/pop. I have nothing against those genres but I just wanted a friend who could listen to some similar music to me and go to concerts. Maybe even show me some more music.

Also I guess I kind of understand where she is coming from because now we have things like "clean goth" (idek) and people just marketing off the goth style now without listening to the music.

Though I'm not one of them. I'm just feeling like a poser right now, also kind of sad.

My Friend is Inviting me to a Twin Tribes Concert.

I don't usually listen to this type of music nor would I consider myself to be a part of the goth subculture but I have really enjoyed Bauhaus – Bella Lugosi's dead and the Cure – A Forest was one of my favorite songs at one point.

I'm seeing them in Houston next week. What to expect? I really love improvisation in music though it isn't everything.

My amazing elder goth friend gifted me this great addition to my collection: This Sadness Never Ends by Haunt Me. Fantastic modern post-punk with an old school gothic flair.

Trying to find female fronted bands for my friend.

He loves Amy Lee’s vocals and Switchblade Symphony. I recently found Die Laughing’s Incarnations and he really enjoyed that album. He typically listens to symphonic metal, but seems to be liking goth rock. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
