    I have much respect for these kids. No Hot-Topic nearby like the little shits of the past couple decades have relied on, for the most part. Back in my day we had to steal a white lab coat from chem-lab and walk uphill 5 miles in the snow to get black Rit dye, then get a massive ass-whupping from the folks for fucking up the washing machine.

    As a Texan goth, I completely understand how miserable it is to wear all black and heavy boots in hot weather. Heaven help you if you decide to wear eye liner.

    Okay because the article linked was incredibly sparse I was curious and did a little googling, if you don't mind hitting up a facebook page there is this https://www.facebook.com/ohmygothdesigns which is based in Kenya (or at least tries to appear to be based out of Kenya) they list the domain http://www.ohmygoth.co.ke which doesn't actually resolve at this time (or at least it doesn't for me). But the facebook page might help with more research into the Kenyan goth culture, they do have a shop in Nairobi as mentioned in the article 'The Goth Shop' but it's web presence is more about stuff than it is people. Always been fascinated with the African take on Punk/Metal/Goth subcultures, people who get into it always appear to have much more to lose and so their involvement comes across much more sincere.
