Gods&Radicals was birthed from a presentation given by Alley Valkyrie and Rhyd Wildermuth on Valentines’ Day, 2015 at Pantheacon. People packed into a tiny room to hear them speak about Capitalism and how Pagans could resist it.
On Beltaine that same year, after receiving a generous donation from Hecate Demeter, Gods&Radicals was founded as a non-profit Pagan Publisher by Alley, Rhyd, Syren Nagakyrie and Lisha Sterling.
Since then, we’ve hosted the work of over 60 brilliant and diverse writers, have had nearly half-a-million site views, and after a wildly supportive Indiegogo fundraiser, inaugurated the Gods&Radicals journal, “A Beautiful Resistance.” We’ve also published the original zine Alley and Rhyd distributed at their presentation. And we’ve more to come!
Ways to Support Us
There are several ways you can help support the work we’re doing.

Donating to Gods&Radicals
One time or recurring contributions really help a lot. We’re mostly volunteer, and would like one day to be able to pay our site writers and editors. Additionally, we offer solidarity copies of our publications to those who can’t afford them, partially funded by our print writers who’ve volunteered to donate their payments.
Any help you would like to offer us is deeply appreciated!
