DRESS CODE Smart casual. Like us.
We did the math (hyuck hyuck), and it's been a scintillating 3,652 days. That's more than a dozenaccolades and thousands of interviews, features, profiles, tweets, posts, blogs, and tiger mom-busting,community-building stereotype-challenging thought pieces later.
Or put more simply, 10 years and a landmark 25th issue later.
So we decided it's time to celebrate in a major way that our good pal, George Takei, best articulates. How major? We're pulling out all the stops for an evening of entertainment to kick off our big birthdayin style as only Hyphen can.
Join us for a toast at the gorgeous SOMArts Cultural Center for an unforgettable look back at the past 10 years, and a celebration of the next 10. We look forward to seeing you there.
And for those of you across time and space that can't come-- we hear your cries and plan on making it to a city near you. In the meantime, don't forget to subscribe, donate some money, love, or a combination of the three (for those of you that really want the extra credit).
Founded in 2002, Hyphen is a nonprofit media organization illuminating Asian America through hard-hitting investigative features on the cultural and political trends shaping the fastest-growing ethnic population in the country. We offer in-depth profiles of change-makers in our community and a window into the world of artists and writers who are re-envisioning and rewriting what it means to be Asian American. Through balanced and incisive reporting and sometimes irreverent commentary, we relate the enormous richness, contradiction, and vitality that defines the Asian American experience to stimulate debate, raise awareness, and build bridges within and beyond our own community. Based in San Francisco, Hyphen is recognized nationwide as an authority on contemporary Asian American identity. Since its inception, Hyphen has been touted in print, online and on camera. Hyphen has been featured or quoted in media outlets such as Yahoo, ESPN, San Francisco Chronicle, Boston Globe, Houston Chronicle, Utne, Flavorpill, Gothamist and Racialicious.com.
