HONOR YOURSELF AND CELEBRATE
“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.”
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
