Hyphen Magazine Crowns A New Mr. Hyphen

Last week, Hyphen Magazine ran the highly successful Mr. Hyphen pageant. When all the dust was settled, Kyle Chu, a filmmaker, artist and musician who hails from San Francisco, was crowned Mr. Hyphen of 2010.

From Hyphen‘s profile of Kyle:

I want to foster an unconditional sense of pride and commitment to one’s heritage through teaching about film and creating media that breaks stereotypes and truly reflects the many ways in which we live. Pride is Power, and I know we all have the power to shed light on what it means to be Asian American.

Chu’s chosen non-profit is CAAM, the Center for Asian American Media, which puts on the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (SFIAFF) each yar. Thanks to Kyle’s victory, CAAM will be receiving $1,000 in prize money.

Congratulations to both Kyle and CAAM!
