“Once upon a time, I went to the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles for one of their annual fundraising celebrations. I had heard about this amazing mansion filled with pornographic archives, dungeons, S & M offices, and a huge collection of erotic male art, but I knew I didn’t have the proper outfit to wear. John Waters in leather chaps, no pants, and motorcycle boots is just not a look anybody would be comfortable with.” –John Waters from Taschen’s Tom of Finland XXL

“Tom of Finland Foundation is hosting an open house! As the home of male erotica in Los Angeles, the Tom of Finland Foundation is a rare and special organization. Whether you live nearby or have traveled from afar, don’t pass up an opportunity to visit TOM House during LA Leather Pride!” – LALP2019
