There’s a lot going on at Hyphen, the Asian American magazine where I’m an editor. The Faith Issue is hitting your mailbox or a newsstand near you. To celebrate, Hyphen is having a release party at Poleng Lounge in San Francisco on April 27.
Just bring your prayer beads, yarmulke and $10. But for just $20, get into the revival tent AND get a subscription to Hyphen! That’s 50% off the list priceâ€”because we want to fill you with the glory of Hyphen’s love (and words). The party will feature Trick Vic (ASDJs), d.j.o.g., Maliciouslee (Banana Milk), DJ Franchise, Modest Mark and Politik (Currency Exchange). The party runs from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
We’re also hard at work on the next Hyphen, which is the Transit Issue and yours truly is serving as managing editor. We’ve got some great stories lined up, including an interview with “Survivor” winner Yul Kwon.
I met Yul at an Asian American Journalists Association dinner where he was the speaker, and he’s the real deal. His actions match his words as he’s really taken it upon himself to do something good with his fame. Yul is in demand for personal appearances, and Hyphen was fortunate to get the interview with him. The fact Yul is so busy is indicative how starved the Asian American community is for someone who can represent.
