Sunlight or twilight? Goths tell how they cope in a heatwave

It's the hottest spell of the year - but not everyone is basking in the sunshine.

For your average Goth, pale skin is a must and the summer sun that most people are soaking up with glee is nothing but a nuisance.

Sky Tyne and Wear found a shady nook in the centre of Newcastle and had a chat with the black-clad tribe to see how they keep cool in a heatwave.

We discovered that many were lurking in the shadows, socialising with friends while maintaining their closely-guarded pallor.

Does it matter?

Simply put...we don't. Some do get out and brave the sunshine, myself included, but never without a trusty parasol and putting on a ton of sunblock before leaving the house. Otherwise during a heatwave you'll either catch me at the movies or taking refuge where it's nice and cool. Hate the heat.

I just draw my curtains in my bedroom and wait until dark to go out. In my room it is alway night except when there is a rainstorm. I do enjoy a good thunderstorm.
