congratulations to mr. hyphen 2011

Five good men. But in the end, there could only be one. Congratulations to Terry Park, who was chosen from a highly competitive field of candidates and presented with the coveted crown of Mr. Hyphen 2011, winning $1,000 for the Asian Prisoner Support Committee. It was apparently a hot, hot night at the Brava! Theatre: It's Reigning Men at Mr. Hyphen 2011.
"I don't know what to say! Just remember we are all unicorns!" said an elated Park, after being handed the crown from Kyle Chu, Mr. Hyphen 2010. The unicorns being a reference to his moving "Make Air, Not War" air guitar performance about being true to oneself -- in which he wore a headband with a single horn over a Slash-style wig.

He may have won over the crowd by declaring pink fleece pajama bottoms sexy, but with the $1,000 he won for the Asian Prisoner Support Committee, Park hopes to bring awareness about the growing number of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the US being imprisoned, detained, and deported. A gleeful Eddy Zheng, who was incarcerated for over 20 years and is now active with the Asian Prisoner Support Committee, jumped onstage to hug Park after he won the title.
