Foundation Announcements

Remembering Daddy Bo. A memorial was held in Los Angeles
on the 1-year anniversary of his passing. With an Honor Guard and stories from friends and family.

Please take a moment to honor our friend's life and legacy.

 

Miguel Angel Reyes

Long before Grindr, Scruff, Snapchat, and that leaked Cheyenne Jackson video, there was erotic art—skilled hands and sharp eyes that captured every detail of the naked human body.

Artists like L.A.'s very own Miguel Angel Reyes keeps this traditional art form alive in his own work at the Tom of Finland Foundation's monthly Life Drawing Workshops: Nude Figure Drawing and Painting. Held as part of the Foundation's second Sundays event in Echo Park, the three-hour workshop welcomes all levels, whether you're looking to hone your art skills or experiment with a pencil. You'll be under Reyes' gentle wing, himself a former workshop attendee before he took over as coordinator nearly 10 years ago.

The Met's Secret Gay Art Collection

At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Andrew Lear guides our correspondent through a cornucopia of statues and pictures, thrumming with same-sex desire.

If there was any doubt that New Yorkers would flock to make a homoerotic lap around one of the world's preeminent art institutions, it was swiftly quashed by an overeager crowd of Ivy Leaguers.

In mid-February, art historian and professor Andrew Lear hosted a preview of an upcoming gay-themed tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a Princeton-hosted Ivy Alumni group. When double the number of visitors that could comfortably navigate the halls showed up, he had to split the visit into two tours.
