Metal music has always been a big part of my life. A few of my favorite bands are ‘Bring Me The Horizon’ and ‘Mother May I’
My personal style and gender identity however, hasn’t been so welcome into the music genre’s scene. Granted I do go to the occasional show where I am greeted and welcomed for my weird and quirky style, mostly I end up getting called names and angry stares. It isn’t until the band starts playing and the rest of the crowed discovers I actually know every word and can mosh just a well as the rest that I am considered to be a real fan of the music.
