On 8th May, Tom of Finland (born Touko Laaksonen), would have turned 100. While he’s no longer around to celebrate, his artwork continues to have an impact on the LGBTIQ community the world over.

“On 8th May we encourage all to make something beautiful and share it – bake a cake, open a bottle of wine and raise a toast to Tom for all that he created and left us in his legacy,” Durk Dehner said.

“Everyone is invited to wish Tom a happy birthday with a tribute on what ever social media platforms they use with the tag #TOMs100,” Dehner stated.
