One of Foundation cofounder Durk Dehner's favorite quotes from Tom:


“In those days, a gay man was made to feel nothing but shame about his feelings and his sexuality. I wanted my drawings to counteract that, to show gay men being happy and positive about who they were. Oh, I didn’t sit down to think this all out carefully. But I knew - right from the start - that my men were going to be proud and happy men!”
