As queer people, we pride ourselves on our knack for connecting and thriving in spaces designed to alienate us. It’s an age old story — we’ve employed our perceptive nature to develop codes that communicate our identities and sexual proclivities to one another. Though many spaces have evolved to allow us to live authentically, we continue to invent signals that declare our values and bind us as a community.
A derivative of “hanky code,” popularized by gay men in the 70s, HANK is a contemporary space that enables our inherent desires by delivering and contextualizing products and experiences as a means to satisfy our needs. Think of HANK as the friend you count on for solid advice. Slightly subversive, but always supportive of what’s best for you, and never judgmental. HANK is here to serve and inspire. Trust us when we say, the pleasure is all ours.
