Hyphen is a national magazine for urban,
in-the-know Asian Americans. Covering arts, culture and politics with substance, style and sass, Hyphen has become a media must for one of the fastest growing populations in America.
Hyphen was conceived in 2003 by San Francisco Bay Area journalists and community leaders who saw the need for a publication about Asian America that would go beyond Lucy Liu, sushi and
yet another examination of the "model minority" story. With award-winning design and fresh perspectives that aren't just about identity issues, Hyphen covers the artists and change-makers who are shaping what it means to be Asian American. By showcasing people outside the boundaries of stereotypes, Hyphen acts as a cultural catalyst, inspiring its readership to branch out - to do, think and create.
Hyphen is not-for-profit and run entirely by volunteers. The hundreds of hours spent by writers, artists, editors, designers, web gurus, bloggers, coordinators, and other lackeys all unpaid. It's a labor of love.
