TOM OF FINLAND


"In those days, a gay man was made to feel nothing but shame about his feelings and his sexuality. I wanted my drawings to counteract that, to show gay men being happy and positive about who they were. Oh, I didn't sit down to think this all out carefully. But I knew - right from the start - that my men were going to be proud and happy men!" -Tom of Finland

Tom of Finland was a Finnish artist known for his homoerotic fetish art from the 50s through the 80s. He has been called "the most influential creator of gay pornographic images" having created over 3500 images during his career. His art was definitely ahead of its time-- and as he said, showed gay men being happy when society told them to hide. 

Now in stock, we have 7 t-shirt designs, 6 mugs and 2 enamel pins. Check them out below! They go perfectly with vintage Pendleton flannels, silver chains and o-ring chokers.
