Tom of Finland preview screening and sleazy hi-NRG after party with Horse Meat Disco DJs

Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after serving his country in World War II. But life in Finland during peacetime proves equally distressing, homosexuality is illegal and men around him are being pressured to marry women and have children.

Touko finds refuge and liberation in his homoerotic drawings of muscular men, who are proud and free of inhibitions. His signature ‘Tom of Finland’ work became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of the gay movement.

The after party will run directly after the ticketed preview screening and is open to everyone. Vauxhall legends Horse Meat Disco are supplying DJs and have promised an evening of “sleazy Hi-NRG”.
