As the first social of its kind, the BLUF club is hosting an evening at the historic TOM House, home of influential icon, Tom of Finland and his educational archive, Tom of Finland Foundation.

The social will be open to any and all male uniform enthusiasts. Paying tribute to the BLUF club’s mandate and a large number of Tom’s works, the event organizers will be enforcing a strict dress-code to which all attendees must respectfully adhere.

.TOM's BLUF social is presented by Nikitas Chondroyannos, Jeff Gent and Louie Pacheco Saenz in cooperation with Tom of Finland Foundation.

"Let this evening be fully memorable and make it of the highest caliber. Remember, it's that space – that place – that you really dig going to. Once you are comfortable, it's amazing how good you feel – Tom would not want it any other way. We do encourage your contacting us with your RSVP and make a commitment to be one of those who choose to be in his element." -- Durk Dehner

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)
