This weekend, one man will be crowned as 2009′s Mr. Hyphen!!!

700x300_hyphen09
This will be the 4th-ever Mr. Hyphen meta-pageant, made possible by the partnership of Hyphen Magazine and the Oakland Asian Cultural Center.

The festivities sum up as such:

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. Rounds will be decided alternately by an audience vote and by an illustrious panel of judges. The man who is crowned Mr. Hyphen wins a $1,000 cash donation to his nonprofit organization.

If you’re in the Bay Area, ‘twould be downright sad for you to miss the parade of hotness! Especially since you can swing the vote! So here’s the info:
