UNIFORM NIGHT
Celebrating Tom of Finland

Events: UNIFORM NIGHT: Celebrating Tom of Finland

A Tom of Finland-themed uniform night,
Saturday, 10p-4a,

to celebrate the NYC theatrical release of
the movie Tom of Finland.

The Film Opens on 13th October at the Quad Cinema

The proudly erotic drawings of Touko Laaksonen, known to the world as the artist Tom of Finland, shaped the fantasies of a generation of 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.

MALE MUSE
"Whenever I was depressed or disgusted, I would feel him, that spirit inside, urging me back to living, back to drawing, I believe there is a lot to the world that can’t be seen or touched, and if you turn away from that — especially if you are an artist — you are avoiding an important part of life, maybe the very heart of it.” — Tom of Finland
