Hyphen Turns 10

Events / Journalism

Hyphen, the magazine I co-founded, turned 10 this year! Most magazines don’t make it past a year. So it’s kind of amazing that we’re still here — still fiercely independent, and covering all things cool, noteworthy, and intriguing about Asian America. Where else are you going to find a Roadmap to Kimchi America and  a World War II interracial love story within pages of each other? These stories (and so much more!) are in our latest issue, our 25th, which features the one-and-only George Takei on our cover rocking the best blue socks I’ve ever seen. Yes, we still print actual magazines in addition to publishing daily on our website.

In the Letters From the Editors in this issue (one from me and one from our current editor in chief), we reflect on 10 years of magazine-making and community building. One thing that I didn’t mention in the note is that I have met some of the most creative, kick-ass, and solid people through Hyphen — people that I’m glad to call my friends today.

Of course, we wouldn’t let such an occasion go by without a party. Join us Saturday, June 30, 2012 at SOMArts for our birthday bash. Hope to see you there.
