Our Erotic Heritage

Erotic art has been an essential part of being gay for the past 30 plus years. One of the main elements of what makes the homo community so special and unique is that our sexuality has brought us together and it is what makes us stand apart. Tom of Finland Foundation events foster the continuation of this value that is vital to the preservation of our tribe.

Bring your friends, neighbors and associates to the Erotic Art Fair. What we create is at the cultural core of our community of queers. Be inspired by the creativity. Be a mentor and share our glory.

— Durk Dehner, President & Cofounder, ToFF

Our Future: Homotopia or NOT
Hosted by Durk Dehner & Rick Castro

into the future and guiding our tribe. They
feel us and know our spirits. Laying their
visions down in texture and color telling
visual stories within their art.

The attending artists each will be invited
to share through their window into the
future, our hopes and fears of life as a culture,
and a community. This will be taped, and be

THE LOUVRE
“I know my little ‘dirty drawings’ are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if — I would like to say ‘when,’ but I better say ‘if’ — our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” (1991)
— Tom of Finland
