    Introduction by Anne Vetik.

    Tom of Finland is one of the gay world's few authentic icons. His drawings have had an enormous influence on gay identity. Tom's ultimate leather men are known and seen everywhere. They are symbols of gay pride and friendship. The Finnish documentary Daddy and the Muscle Academy includes interviews with the artist's models, associates and intimates, not to mention a dramatized journey into “Tom’s soul”. The documentary includes some titillating “enactments” inspired by Tom’s art work.
