In the second part of TOM’s Hall, Durk Dehner, president and cofounder of Tom of Finland Foundation, tells the viewer a great deal about the Tom of Finland drawings contained in the space.

In this tour, Durk touches on Tom’s themes of humor and culture: His cheeky takes on elements from his Finnish heritage, his use of fashion in styling Tom’s Men, and his progressive visions for inclusion at a time when publishers would not accept interracial erotic art.

This tour contains rare pieces of Tom’s not always seen in TOM House Tours, so it’s not to be missed. Watch the full video now at The World of TOM.
