As one of the world’s most influential artists, Tom of Finland (1920-1991) is the creator of the most iconic and readily recognizable gay post-war imagery. Beginning in the 1940s, he robbed straight homophobic culture of its most virile and masculine archetypes (bikers, hoodlums, lumberjacks, cops, cowboys, and sailors) and recast them - through deft skill and fantastic imagination- unapologetic, self-aware, and boastfully proud. TOM’s positive message of respect, tolerance and sexual freedom – expressed through a body of work produced over six decades, has turned him into a hero and symbol for human rights.
A portion of the proceeds from this pin will be donated to Tom of Finland Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of erotic art to help foster more tolerant attitudes about sexuality.
