who will be crowned mr. hyphen 2009?

My friends, let us gather to celebrate the hot men of the Asian American community at the fourth annual Mr. Hyphen competition on Saturday, November 14 at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. That's right, baby. A beauty pageant.

Each year, Hyphen and OACC celebrate Asian American men who devote themselves to worthy community causes. While structured like a pageant with rounds of talent, fashion and Q&A, Mr. Hyphen turns stereotypes on their heads in front of a sold-out crowd. Striking a blow for equal-opportunity all-in-good-fun ogling, Mr. Hyphen is an energy-filled evening of fun and charity.
