Why We're Rad

Those of us from Portland understand “rad” as a way of life or, at least, a quest for what is rad. It goes beyond “cool” or “unique.”Rad inspires awe and positivity in a special way that touches the hearts and minds of those who get it on some level. It is an excitement, which carries from one human being to the next. This is the Republic. Rad Republic seeks to bring together the collective unconscious of rad seekers; those who are all mysteriously moved by a work of art, a melody … a spirit that uplifts us all. Portland is sacred ground for this movement. Some call us crazy. That’s okay because normal is not our way.
