      Portland, Oregon, Is a Paradise

      March 27, 2013

      Welcome to Portland, Oregon: recently crowned karaoke capital of the USA by the New York Times. The rent is cheap, everyone is in a band, and the unofficial slogan of the city is "Keep Portland Weird." Sounds like a lot of places I know, looks like it's full of weirdos.

      If you need any more persuasion to visit, here's a set of pictures by occasional cross-dresser Bryan Kyckelhahn. The greenest (and arguably weirdest) city in America awaits you.
