Hanky Code: Los Angeles Premiere at LAST Projects Gallery on Hollywood Blvd, site of much 1970's seminal queer history including L.A's first gay pride parade and adjacent to Rick Castro's legendary queer fetish gallery Antebellum.

Filmmaker and Producer Gentry McShane in attendance. 


Before Internet dating and hookup apps, The Handkerchief code was largely used by gay men in the 1970’s to distinguish sexual preferences and fetishes in gay clubs and on the streets of places like San Francisco and New York. In Hanky Code: The Movie, Periwinkle Cinema, San Francisco’s queer experimental film collective brings Queer and Trans* filmmakers across a spectrum of genres, styles, genders, and locations to dissect the code in this epic anthology feature comprised of 25 short films! Each filmmaker or filmmaking team tells a story of a different color/fetish of the code. Films range from narrative to experimental to erotic and animated, with many films redefining the traditional code with colors, patterns, and fetishes up to creative interpretation of the artist.
