Touko Laaksonen returns home to Finland from the harrowing experiences World War II, but life during peacetime proves equally distressing. He finds Helsinki rampant with persecution of homosexuals and finds refuge in his liberating art, specializing in homoerotic drawings of muscular men. His work became the emblem of a generation of men, and made famous his signature ‘Tom of Finland’.
Introduced by Durk Dehner, Founder Director of the Tom of Finland Foundation
