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 provocative drawings in a very difficult time around the 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 images”. Laaksonen made over 3,500 of this new kind of visualization of gay men with a distinctive shape of body and face. For the first time ever, gay men were shown as strong and dominant humans, who are attracted to each other. We visited the exhibition “Tom of Finland – The Pleasure of Play” at the Kunsthalle Helsinki during our trip to 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 to the Finnish capital Helsinki during the 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. The Nordic atmosphere, delicious cuisine, art and architecture, and the overall environmentally friendly life concept are worth a trip.
