After months of campaigning by immigrant and LGBTQ rights groups, Nicoll Hernández-Polanco was freed from her detention by ICE. Her story, written by Kris Hayashi of the Transgender Law Center, is a story of a young woman who escaped the broken immigration system, and how she was criminalized and psychologically tortured simply for being young and transgender.

I'm cracking up at this video of an Asian American man doing 500 impressions of various people in 2 minutes. That's right, 500. Who is this guy? OK, that's it for now. Back to work.

Bay Area folks (or those of you down for some driving), check out this free event over the weekend. Our friends over at UC Berkeley's Asian Pacific American Student Development (APASD) and Asian American Studies program are presenting their 17th Annual Asian Pacific Islander Issues Conference titled FROM THE GROUND UP: Breaking Barriers, Building Coalitions. And it costs absolutely nothing (on your end, that is).

I have to give Center for Asian American Media and everybody involved in the 25th SFIAAFF kudos – I think it was an amazing week.

So I have been thinking about what to write for this blog entry for a couple of days. As a Hyphen blogger/editor and usual attendee of the film festival, I decided to watch some screeners of films from this year's San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival and blog about them.

So, I’m not sure if anyone watched the reality show – or docu-soap – I’m From Rolling Stone on MTV, most people didn’t.
