Wiki and I attended the John Waters stand up show  – the first thing out of John’s mouth in response to the applause was, “Wow, I feel like Tom of Finland!” Then, during the Q and A, he was asked if he ever met Tom. He answered no, but there is this house, Tom of Finland Foundation, in Los Angeles…  He went on to tell a great story about visiting TOM House, having a slave and even talked about “the president, Durk” in all his leather gear. He basically opened and closed with a shout-out to Tom.

John, Wiki and Al


We got to very quickly visit him after the show and then again at his book signing in Kamppi. It was really uplifting to hear the Foundation and Durk mentioned by John in a sold-out auditorium of Finns.
