The Visibility Project and Hyphen magazine have partnered to create LGBTQ Hyphen, the first dedicated LGBTQ online section in a mainstream and nationwide Asian American publication. This is historic. We raise and highlight LGBTQ AAPI voices like never before and bring LGBTQ AAPI opinions and lenses to national debates.

You've probably seen parts of this interview over the years. It's very interesting to hear him talk. I was too young to really remember seeing him when he was alive. I hadn't seen this entire interview before. Oh, if only David Carradine had not come along.

Looks like the immigration bill has stalled for now. Where are Asian Americans in this debate, though? Not in the streets protesting. And sadly, not making much of a presence. Why? Apathy? Fear of rocking the boat? You can't tell me it's disinterest. After all, we are some of the country's newest immigrants. I hate to say it, but some of us seem to live up to the stereotype of meek quiet Asians. Yesterday's California Report on NPR notes that the protests have been comprised mostly of Latinos and asks how Asian Americans see their role in the immigration debate. Audio clip here.

I love these stories about people who get Asian language tattoos only to find out that it means something different than what they thought (or nothing at all). If you can't read it, why are you getting it tattooed? Serves you right. Cool Tat, Too Bad It's Gibberish
