NEW RELEASE! Tom of Finland Movie Trailer out now

Tom of Finland Movie Trailer – Most of us know Tom of Finland from sexy pornographic gay art of men in fetish gear posing or loving each other. But the story behind the Finnish artist Touko Valio Laaksonen is much more. Born in 1920, he started with his too sexy and provocativ drawings in a very difficult time around second World War and later. But his art was meant to liberate.

Joseph W. Slade, American author and cultural historian, named Touko Valio Laaksonen as the “most influential creator of gay pornographic images”. Laaksonen made over 3.500 of these new kind of sexual visualisation of gay men with a distinctive shape of body and face. The first time ever gay men were shown as strong and dominant humans, who are sexual attracted to each other.  During our trip to Helsinki we were able to visit the exhibition “Tom of Finland – The Pleasure of Play” at Kunsthalle Helsinki. Impressive pictures of a dark time. But what about the dangerous story of the gay artist?

Gay Couple City Weekend Helsinki

This year, we traveled the Finnish capital Helsinki during Mid Summer night, Euro Games and Gay Pride Helsinki 2016. We had a blast. Helsinki is one of the most gay-friendly places in the world, an ideal place for a trip all year long. Nordic atmosphere, delicious cuisine, art and architecture and the overall environmental friendly life-concept is worth a trip. You wanna know what you can do in the Finnish capital Helsinki?
