After publishing our 12th issue in April, 2010, we have decided to retire The Portland Upside.


The Portland Upside is free and printed issues are distributed around to over 1000 locations around the Portland metro area by volunteers. Some of the places where it's available are below. Issues are also as pdf's online on our Issues page, and all articles can be seen on our Articles page where you can add comments.

Send us an email if you would like to help us distribute or know a location that might be willing to carry copies of The Portland Upside.
