In the 1940s, when Homosexuality was illegal and considered to be a mental illness, Tom of Finland (Touko Laaksonen, 1920-1991) began drawing pictures of men embracing their sexuality fully and passionately, without fear or remorse.
Tom altered the way Gay men thought of themselves. He also changed the way in which non-Gay people thought about male Homosexuals. —Edward Lucie-Smith
We are seeing a return to the less enlightened parameters of the past that neutralize our unique Homosexual perspective. Censorship is rampant. Tom of Finland Foundation’s objective is to continue to resist and abate such trends. This is the very purpose of the Foundation.
The Bush recession has been devastating for artists and nonprofits alike. To date, funding for our important work has come from individuals like you; your memberships and donations are vital to Tom’s Foundation.
