The Alhambra Source and Haikus With Hotties welcome Yoshi Sudarso, Peter Sudarso, Desmond Chiam, Chris Pang, and Kenta Seki to the recently-opened vintage toy store Toy-Zilla for a panel about their work and being Asian American and Asian Australian actors in Hollywood. The discussion will be moderated by Alhambra Source Managing Editor Phoenix Tso, followed by a signing of the 2018 Haikus For Hotties calendar, a project promoting well-rounded Asian male representation in the media that all panelists are featured in. Can be purchased in store day-of or online at www.haikuswithhotties.com.
Tickets are free, but please RSVP at Eventbrite to save a seat.
Part sincere appreciation and part tongue-in-cheek spoof, Haikus With Hotties is a series that celebrates Asian male hotness in all forms. Haikus With Hotties released its first calendar in 2016 after a successful Kickstarter campaign featuring Yoshi and Peter Sudarso. 2017 brought a second calendar with a new twist: “From the makers of Haikus With Hotties now comes Haikus *On* Hotties.” And in 2018, the fans are invited to participate in the fun and write Haikus *For* Hotties. What started out as a joke has become a nice excuse to feature a variety of Asian American men doing interesting things in the media. For more information, visit www.haikuswithhotties.com.
Alhambra Source is the only local news outlet dedicated to covering the predominantly immigrant San Gabriel Valley city of 85,000. The site launched in 2010, building on two years of research by professors and students at USC Annenberg’s School for Communication and Journalism investigating how local news can increase civic engagement in Alhambra and other diverse cities. Since then dozens of community members — working with professional journalists — have reported on Alhambra. The site serves as a forum for local voices, and a platform for the expression and development of writers, videographers, and photographers.
