We were so, so proud and excited to be showing the work of gay cultural icon Tom of Finland back in March... and so, so gutted when the coronavirus pandemic meant we had to shut the exhibition 10 days later.
But in good news for those who missed it – and those of you lucky enough to catch it but hankering for more Tom in your life – we've got this illustrated talk to share, made in collaboration with our friends at the Knowledge Quarter and presented by exhibition co-curator Olivia Ahmad.
