SATURDAY: Afternoon at the Movies

The Tom of Finland Movie is nearing the end of its run at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs. Have you been putting off seeing it? Want to see it again?

How about an informal meetup? DFA members Ken and John haven't seen it yet and will be attending Saturday's 2:30 pm showing. Why not gather at 2:15 so we can all grab some seats together? Show up earlier if you want to get some popcorn. John and Ken will be in the lobby in their DFA t-Shirts. Enjoy a great movie with good company.

About the Film

The proudly erotic drawings of artist Touko Laaksonen, known to the world as Tom of Finland, shaped the fantasies of a generation of gay men, influencing art and fashion before crossing over into the wider cultural consciousness. But who was the man behind the leather? Dome Karukoski’s stirring biopic follows his life from the trenches of WWII and repressive Finnish society of the 1950s through his struggle to get his work published in California, where he and his art were finally embraced amid the sexual revolution of the 1970s. Tom’s story is one of love, courage and perseverance, mirroring the gay liberation movement for which his leather-clad studs served as a defiant emblem.
