Is anyone else here learning to DJ for goth events?

Not a serious discussion thread or anything, I'm just excited about practicing and eventually being able to give back to my local scene and participate in the subculture in a more significant way. Is anyone else planning on doing the same? I love goth music and tons of music in general and I'm so excited to be able to share the weird stuff I find with people 🙂

Advice on learning how to sing in a more “gothic” voice (I guess)

I really like how Sean Brennan sings. It’s androgynous.

I don’t know much about singing but I think I’m like a baritone or something but I can’t really get my voice that low or that high.

Edit: also sorry if this is a stupid question but I’m stupid and therefore must act such

Progressing and learning in TN

Hi, I'm Kat! I'm a trans female living in TN, and I'm just starting to get into the goth subculture even though I'm 40😱. I've been learning and exploring both goth music and fashion. Bingeing on bands like Siouxsie and the Banshees, The March Violets, Virgin Prunes, Sex Gang Children, Paralisis Permanente, Xmal Deutschland, 45 Grave, Skeletal Family, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Sisters of Mercy, Clan of Xymox from the 80s to get a base of things. The music is great can't say I have found anything that I absolutely love, but a lot of things that I enjoy.

I'm now starting to move into the '90s with a playlist of Two Witches, Brotherhood of Pagans, Faith and the Muse, Children on Stun, Nosferatu, Gothic Sex, Whisper in the Shadow, Rosetta Stone, Paralysed Age, Vendemmian, and Corpus Delicti. Again I'm vibing with the music, but still looking for my band I guess. I've also started working on more goth fashion and makeup for myself. I love the makeup and fashion I see from everyone, and really enjoy the looks I have put together myself.

I have always had black as a staple of my wardrobe, as well as being into stuff like old horror movies House on Haunted Hill, Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Wolfman. I can't say I am into modern horror though. I loved Elvira's Movie Macabre back when I was a kid too. I remember staying up late to watch it on TV. I also loved the old dark comedy TV shows like The Munsters and The Adam's family. Was very into The Lost Boys movie, Once Bitten, The Monster Squad, From Dusk till Dawn, Gremlins, Interview with a Vampire, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Movie and TV show), and movies that edged horror but never really went there.

I don't know why I never got into goth music more at a younger age, I had friends that were into it in Highschool heavily, but I guess I was just too shy and not bold enough to explore it for myself. Things have changed though and since then I have realized I am trans and started working towards exploring that and who I am as a woman. This has kinda been the catalyst for my goth awakening. The fashion and makeup drew me in at first and now the music is very much something I feel connected with now.

Anyway, with the introduction out of the way I was just interested in seeing if anyone else is in TN. Doesn't seem like there's a huge scene for goth here, which makes sense it is the south, but I have been looking for things and people that I can venture more into the goth culture with. If you're in TN or know anything here that I should look into please let me know. Looking for accepting open-minded things though as I am trans and pre-transition so still not presenting full-time as female, but I would like to at least start showing others the real me more both the feminine and goth sides.

Sorry this is so long, and I'm sure most won't read, but thanks if you did!
