Gothic and Amazing started out as someone’s dream to show the world that Goth doesn’t have to be just dark and depressing. Like a black rose is dark but yet  beautiful so why not find beauty in the dark and be Gothic and Amazing. And with that, one day a Facebook  page was born trying to show the beautiful part of Goth. The goal was to support everyone that fit that description  from  models to photographers, make-up artists, stylists, music bands, shop owners and all kinds of Goth form of art.

The idea was also to show that supporting each other, people could grow along with their pages. So from one person’s dream, a team of people with the same beliefs was born, the G&A team. Here we are now making our mark and showing how we all see the goth-subculture.
