Review and interview by Sailor Holladay for The Outsider News:
“One of the exciting film based offerings at this year’s National Queer Arts Festival is Hanky Code: The Movie, a multi-discipline, multi-sexual interpretation of the hanky code, a practice originally popularized in the 1970’s by bisexual and gay men to signal their sexual availabilities and proclivities. Over twenty-six artists are involved in the project, hailing from the Bay Area, New York, Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, Tennessee, and France.”

“…the first title of the (Fish & Chips Film Festival) feature film competition is Hanky Code (2015), a work by San Francisco queer collective Periwinkle Cinema that pays homage to the custom of the gay community in the seventies to wear a bandana in the back pocket whose color and shape were chosen on the basis of the preferred and sought sexual practices (as seen in the movie Cruising).” – Punto Di Svista (translated from the Italian)
