Queer people have always found a way to connect and thrive in spaces designed to alienate us. Through the ages, we’ve used our perceptive powers to develop codes that communicate our identities and sexual proclivities. While many spaces have evolved to allow us to live openly, queer people continue to invent signals that declare our values and bind us as a community.
Derivative of “hanky code,” popularized by gay men in the 70s, HANK is the contemporary space that enables our inherent desires by delivering and contextualizing products and experiences to satisfy our needs. Think of HANK as the friend you count on for sound advice. Slightly subversive. Always supportive of what’s best for you. Never judgmental. HANK is here to serve and inspire. The pleasure is all ours.
