Touko Valio LaaksonenIs is the artist who created Tom of Finland. I cannot think of a more accomplished or recognized artist from the 20th century in the LGBTQ community. His stylized and hyper masculine homoerotic art remains popular even though “Tom” passed away nearly 30 years ago.
If you’re a fan of Tom of Finland, you should definitely add this to your Instagram feed if you’ve not previously and most definitely check out the 2017 biopic Tom of Finland. It was an excellent movie about the artist and how Tom of Finland came to be.
