We, at Tom of Finland Foundation (ToFF), would like to officially thank the convent for the donation of the proceeds from “TOM’s Angels” held on the 15th of March, 2013 at Eagle LA. It was wonderful to see such a show of support! Novice Sister Hanna did a glittering job and we are most proud of her.

TOM’s Angels was a reaffirmation of the relationship between TOM’s Foundation and the Order that spans many years. We have always been eager to work together. ToFF is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Educational Archive and very appreciative for your continued support and assistance in the furtherance of our goals.  

We are able to keep our doors open to the public and maintain a schedule of programs for artists through your generosity. You go Hanna!

Thank you to all the Artists, Sponsors, Volunteers and Supporters who fiercely made this benefit such a success that Charlie Matula was glad he ordered extra beer for the evening!




The process of becoming a Sister is not an easy aspiration. It takes well over a year to earn your place among The Sisters. Despite the outrageous fun, glamorous life and public notoriety, this is really hard work. Not for the faint of heart…not for the wallflower!

There is a progressive path that takes place as part of the Order. The paths teaches, discipline, creativity, courage and testicles as big as bowling balls. The journey teaches the history of the Sisters, Gay history, compassion for outsiders, and most of all, the ability to inspire our community to become as glorious and glamorous as you believe we are.
