Hurrah, Queer City Cinema is still on today and the festival is definitely cause to get dressed with fun and intention. The programming theme this year is ‘Whatchulookinat?!’, which urges viewers to use a critical lens when gazing and interpreting representations of gender and sexuality.
A few years ago the queer community seemed lit up with excitement about reviving/reinterpreting the old school “hanky code”, a covert sartorial system where one would wear hankies of different colours in one’s left or righ back pocket, signaling the wearer’s sexual preferences. Nowadays the hanky code has become more elaborate. Have a look at the attached charts and pics to see if there’s a hanky code in there for you. Enjoy, and enjoy getting dressed!
