It’s finally here, folks. And it looks like it was worth the wait.
The full trailer for Tom of Finland has just been released. The biopic explores the life of Touko Laaksonen, a.k.a Tom of Finland, a.k.a. the king of homoeroticism, whose unapologetic drawings shattered taboos and helped bring gay male eroticism and leather fetish culture into the mainstream.
Laaksonen died in 1991 at the age of 71. 25 years later, he remains one of the most influential figures in the gay art scene, and is perhaps one of Finland’s most well-known LGBTQ artists. The Finnish-language biopic, directed by Dome Karukoski and starring Pekka Strang, will be released in early 2017.
