A Goth peers from behind a gravestone during the Whitby Gothic Weekend in Whitby, England. The Gothic weekend, which started in 1994 to celebrate all things dark and mysterious, has now grown to a twice yearly event for Goths. Whitby was partly chosen because Bram Stoker wrote his famous Dracula story in the fishing town with the Gothic Whitby Abbey as his inspiration. The weekend has now grown from providing a few bands to include followers of Romanticism, Victoriana, Cybergoth and Steampunk.
