HONOR YOURSELF AND CELEBRATE

The “Daddy’s Day” parking lot party for TOM is celebrated with artists showing their work, bawdy contests and prizes, a silent auction, food and drink, and general tomfoolery! All to benefit the Foundation that Touko Laaksonen (Tom of Finland) cofounded in 1984.

TOM’s Bar 2014 is presented by Los Angeles Band of Brothers and marks the 20th anniversary of Tom of Finland events sponsored by Faultline.

We are looking for strong hands and/or eager bodies to help us get this job done right. If you have a few hours to volunteer contact
Visit the Volunteers Page for More Info

"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
President and cofounder, ToFF.

"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

"Every year gives us more reason to rejoice in TOM, and this year certainly has his 'stamp of approval'! "

Help Us Celebrate the Historic Tom of Finland Postage Stamps

— S. R. Sharp, vice-president, ToFF


Stuart Sandford will be showing some new photos and
donating some of the proceeds to Foundation.

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.
