who will be mr. hyphen?

Another reminder... Next month, Hyphen presents the crowning of Mr. Hyphen 2007, a pagaent of worthy and excellent Asian American men. Six men will battle it out for the title with their style, attitude, talent and dedication to the community. The winner takes home a prize donation to the nonprofit he represents. This year's contestants are:

Tingwei Lin, East Bay Asian Local Dev, Corp.
Luke Patterson, Great Leap
Anthem Salgado, Babae
Jeffrey Sichaleune, Midwest Asian American Student Union
Jason Woo, California Dragonboat Association
Billy Yeh, My Sister's House

That's an awesome list of dudes. The festivities will emceed by comedienne Ali Wong, with judging duties by Robert Bernardo of the Gay Asian Pacific Alliance, Chi-hui Yang of the Center for Asian American Media, and Krizia Mae Sapida, Miss San Francisco 2007. It all goes down Saturday, June 9th at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. Make your plans, get your tickets, and find more information here.

UPDATE: Oh yes, the Hyphen blog has been running profiles of these upstanding gentlemen all week ("Six Days of Mr. Hyphen").
