Gay Men on TV – Why There Isn’t a Tom of Finland Show

I work in television, and one thing I often get asked when talking about my job to guys I meet from around the country (as if I run a network and can make like, actual decisions) is “Where are the gay guys on TV like me?!?!” And I totally get where they’re coming from… why is it that even though gay characters and gay men on reality shows has increased over the last ten or fifteen years, we are still subjected to one basic type… the nelly queen. Now both you and I know that gay men come in all shapes and sizes, and while I am not one of those gay men that abhors my swishy-fabulous counterparts, I do gotta wonder… does Hollywood not know that Muscle Bears and Daddies exist? Where are the butch homos?

XXX Toy Story

One of the most well-recognized symbols of contemporary gay culture, the heavily muscled and big-dicked “Rebel” of Tom of Finland’s illustrations has found new life as an action figure.

The 001 Rebel is the first in a series of officially licensed action figures based on the artwork of Tom of Finland. At 13” tall, these collectible action figures are of the highest quality, featuring 15 points of articulation, detailed paint, removable clothing and a range of accessories—including three interchangeable penises. Each figure is serially numbered, displayed on a chrome base that also functions as a storage box for accessories and is covered with a protective clear bell-jar vitrine. The action figure makes a great collectible to add to your assortment of Tom of Finland illustrations and erotic art, or the perfect partner to that lonesome Ken doll rattling around the Malibu Dreamhome. Just don’t tell Barbie.
