Do you recognize the name Touko Laaksonen? Perhaps not, but his drawings have become collectibles and his Tom of Finland drawings are iconic in the gay community. Earlier this week the full trailer for Tom of Finland was released.
The video gives us a glimpse of the biopic, that explores the life of Laaksonen, a.k.a Tom of Finland, whose unapologetic drawings shattered taboos and showcased gay male eroticism in a way it never was before and has not been seen since. The Finnish-language biopic, directed by Dome Karukoski and starring Pekka Strang, is scheduled for release in early 2017.
