Los Angeles (PRWEB) March 30, 2008
Beginning in early March, several hundreds of people have gathered in riots against emo kids. In Queretaro, a city 160 miles north of Mexico City with nearly 1.5 million residents, many residents are taking a stand against the dyed hair (most often black), eye makeup wearing (yes even men!) individuals.
These riots have led to police protection for the 'minority.' The kids whom are deemed 'emo' are organizing to demonstrate against the violence. Many have reportedly met with police Wednesday. "They're organizing to defend their right to be emo," said Daniel Hernandez of LA Weekly.
The variation of fashion and musical taste that is called emo began with bands such as Death Cab for Cutie and Brand New taking popularity in the last 10 years. LUV-EMO.com is a new created site to show appreciation toward the individualism of their kind. This emo battle however is nothing new; subculture fights have been apparently since the time of the hippies and Altamont Music Festival.
Mexico, however, associated being emo with being homosexual. Anti-emo websites have been created to counter against the workings of LUV-EMO.com, a website created to showcase the reality of what emo is and what it stands for. The website includes a variety of categories for web browsers including emo fashion, emo music, emo pictures and an emo forum.
Education through example, Luv-emo.com is living proof that emo exists and isn't going away anytime soon.
