Gear Invasion - Tom of Finland
Known to the world as Tom of Finland, the proudly erotic drawings of artist Touko Laaksonen shaped the fantasies of a generation gay men, influencing art and fashion before crossing over into the wider cultural consciousness. But who was the man behind the leather? Dome Karukoski’s stirring biopic follows his life from the trenches of WWII and repressive Finnish society of the 1950s through his struggle to get his work published in California, where he and his art were finally embraced amid the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Tom’s story is one of love, courage and perseverance, mirroring the gay liberation movement for which his leather-clad studs served as a defiant emblem.
Make sure to be at the Historic San Diego Ken Cinema to come together with our brothers and sisters in leather, for a night of rejoice and pride in Who We Are. There will be a raffle in support of the Leather Foundation* during this event, so please help by giving back where you can!
*The Leather Foundation is a 501c3 that helps those in need here in San Diego, and also provides condoms and lube for safer sex practices for social events.
