The Tom of Finland Foundation is going to grab your head with its big hands and hold you in place while it turns Father’s Day upside down at favorite L.A. bar, Faultline. Read all about it below.
Unbuckle your belt for a fully immersive experience, combining fine art, music, video and performance. And a ton of horny dads and lads looking to make it happen.
Emphasizing the Foundation’s role promoting and preserving really nasty and ground-breaking erotic art, a gallery show is added to this year’s celebration of Tom: DaddyWood. All of the work included in the show, “Hard Sweat”, has been created with the intent to make you horny. “Any work representing or causing arousal was our focus,” say curators Liz Lee and Cali Thornhill DeWitt. Plus, the show happens in a gym (Peak 5 Fitness), an automatic lewd conduct trigger for many Tom fans.
ARTISTS: Marcel Alcalá, Heather Benjamin, Butch Dick, Emma Kohlmann, Mike Kuchar, Brendan Lynch, Ryan McGinley, Alexis Ross, Jess Scott, and John Waters.
DaddyWood Father's Day performers include underground gay rapper, Le1f, sex positive queer artist, Brooke Candy, Sky Ferreira, Hardcore Tina, Plack Blague, NoSesso, Ssion and Danny Lethal. Irrepressible Charlene hosts the event. All friends of TOM's Foundation, these artists are pushing themes of BDSM, queer art, gender bending, race and sexuality, creating an inclusive space for all queer folks.
Tom of Finland inspired tattoos will be offered by artists Adam Vu Noir, Nathan Kostechko, Heather Bailey, and Tamara Santibañez.
A party is not complete without contests like best ass, best Tom character, and vogue/ballroom, giving everyone a chance to indulge their exhibitionism and lewd behaviour.
This year, including regular donations, ToFF will also offer impressive Membership VIP packages. Funds raised allow TOM's Foundation to continue their mission of protecting, preserving and promoting erotic art. There is a censorship war in the U.S. right now if you didn’t notice. Contributing to the Foundation directly fights the growing movement to censor erotic art.
