Hattie Goes Cruising

Philadelphia, New York, USA

In an age of online cruising and sex apps, having sex in parks and public bathrooms seems like a thing of the past. But for Hank Major, a 70-year-old gay African-American gentleman from Philadelphia, picking up guys on the street or at old-school cruising grounds is still very much a way of life. In this charming, funny, and poignant documentary, the perennially horny Major, whose friends have nicknamed him Hattie Louise, takes us back in time, through a turbulent life full of cruising.
