Writer-actor Justin Sayre offers a modern take on gay "hanky codes" in this exclusive video clip for HuffPost Gay Voices.

In a recent installment of his variety show, "The Meeting," Sayre suggests revampling the handkerchief color codes, which were historically used by gay men to identify sexual preferences, to reflect the many facets of the contemporary community. True to form, the results are tongue-in-cheek and hilarious.

Sayre's "International Order of Sodomites" (I.O.S.) gathers once a month for "The Meeting," honoring an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the gay community. Previous editions have been dedicated to Cher, Karen Carpenter, Judy Garland and Stephen King's "Carrie."

This month's show will be dedicated to John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch") and hits New York's Joe's Pub on April 20. Before that, Sayre is also slated to perform at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles on April 11 and the Rrazz Room in New Hope, Penn. on April 17.
