Hattie Goes Cruising is a short-documentary about Hank Major - we can call him Hattie Louise - a 70-year-old gay African-American gentleman from Philadelphia, who takes us back in time, through a turbulent life full of cruising.
Today, hooking up for sex with strangers through eye contact almost seems nostalgic. In times of Grindr and PlanetRomeo, cruising is happening in a virtual reality, rather than in parks or public bathrooms.
Hattie shares insights and gives practical advice. We meet his partner Alan, get a a look inside their 35-year-lasting relationship and travel with them to New York, where Hattie was very actively cruising in the 60s.
