If artist Touko Laaksonen – better known asTom of Finland – accomplished anything, it was in giving gay men avision of themselves as strong, fearless, ;virile men. Although he diedin 1991, his art work is, arguably, even more popular today than when hewas alive and he continues to inspire and excite men even now.

Join Leathermen's Discussion group for a special event: our Tom of Finland art auction and cocktail party. With the help of Tom of Finland Foundation's Durk Dehner, we'll be auctioning off pieces of work not only by Tom of Finland himself, but other Foundation artists, as well as local eroticartists.

The evening's activities include a silent auction, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and an interview with Dehner himself.

Spice up your art collection, enjoydrinks with good company, and help support LDG.

HAPPY SEXUALITY
“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!"
— Tom of Finland
