The meeting took place at the Sea Horse restaurant in Touko’s neighborhood where he and his lover of 28 years, Veli, took many meals.


The great thing about collaborating with Helsinki-filmi on the TOM OF FINLAND project is that the movie will be made, not only with the artist’s sensibility, but with a Queer sensibility, as well.

At the meeting, among others, were historian Kati Mustola, author Lamppu Laamanen, Durk Dehner and Susanna Luoto from TOM’s Foundation, TOM’s Club member Wiki Wickman and Marko Kuivalainen from the Seura.
