“to see a little further,
every artist stands on the shoulders
of artists who came before him.”

A look at Tom of Finland and his friends. One National Gay and Lesbian Archives, a brother organization, has invited the Foundation to mount an exhibition of works from our permanent collection. This exhibition follows our historical journey from the ‘5Os through to present day. It reflects some of the greats of the 1970s Gay renaissance, artists that came to be known through ToFF’s Emerging Erotic Artist Contests and ones who made the journey from countries afar to gain their notoriety here.

It has been curated to display Queer kinship, love and affection for each other, brute force of sexual desire and the unabashed freedom we are known for in our sexual candor. never alone celebrates the diversity within our own community and honors the many who have left their mark in our cultural garden of splendor.

Please join us in viewing a sampling of the magnificence that is ours – warriors from the legion of the beautifully proud.

ENCOURAGEMENT
"My drawings are primarily meant for guys who may have experienced misunderstanding and oppression and feel that they have somehow failed in their lives. I want to encourage them. I want to encourage this minority group, to tell them not to give up, to think positively about their act and whole being." (1990) — Tom of Finland
