"Tom asked me not to have a funeral but to have a party—like a scene from his artwork — people coming together and having a hell of a good time. We created a celebration — the first ‘TOM’s Bar’ in 1992, which has become a Tom of Finland Foundation annual event honoring Tom."

—Durk Dehner

"I wanted to show Gays they can feel happy together. I wanted to tell them they have a right to enjoy life in their way – Gays being together feeling happy, being proud of who they are."

—Tom of Finland

TOM ON HIS WORK
"Yes, I consider my work pornography. Pornography means to stimulate peoples' sexual feelings, and I'm always very aware of that. My motive is lower than art." — Tom of Finland from the MSC Finland Website.
