“Once upon a time, I went to the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles for one of their annual fundraising celebrations. I had heard about this amazing mansion filled with pornographic archives, dungeons, S & M offices, and a huge collection of erotic male art, but I knew I didn’t have the proper outfit to wear. John Waters in leather chaps, no pants, and motorcycle boots is just not a look anybody would be comfortable with.”

–John Waters from Taschen’s Tom of Finland XXL

“Tom of Finland Foundation is hosting an open house! As the home of male erotica in Los Angeles, the Tom of Finland Foundation is a rare and special organization. Whether you live nearby or have traveled from afar, don’t pass up an opportunity to visit TOM House during LA Leather Pride!”

Getting to TOM House

Our bus stop is Sunset/Echo Park. We are serviced by Metro lines 4/704 and 2/302. Also the 603 to Alvarado/Sunset.

Continue on Sunset Boulevard to Laveta Terrace, then up the short hill and up the Grand Stairs until Laveta Terrace levels out and another 1/2 block. TOM House is on your left. The House is only a 0.3 mile walk from the bus stop.
