Gay Casinos

Gay Online Casinos:

At the time of writing there is only one official gay online casino in the world and that is Tom’s Casino, the official casino of (and supporting) the Tom of Finland Foundation.

UPDATE: Sadly we have just been informed that Tom’s Casino has now close.

A couple of my mates reliably inform me that Tom of Finland should need absolutely no introduction to any gay person living in the western world so I’ll just drop in a link to the official Tom of Finland Wikipedia page rather than patronise you by pretending I know anything about him. All I will say from my side is that Tom’s Casino is a white label casino running on the MT Secure Trade platform which is widely regarded as one of the top platforms in the online casino industry.

Bringing more pleasure to the world of Tom of Finland.

“I’m delighted to announce our new partnership with TOM’s Casino, the world’s only online gay casino. This cooperation will introduce new audiences to Tom’s work and his message of liberation”, says Durk Dehner, president of Tom of Finland Foundation. “With TOM’s Casino’s support, we will continue to further our mission to protect, preserve and promote all erotic art and its heritage regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual identity, medium of expression or any other censoring criteria.”

TOM’s Casino is an homage to Touko Laaksonen (Finnish, 1920–1991), a.k.a. Tom of Finland. Tom of Finland is widely regarded as the foremost gay male erotic artist of our time. In the years following World War II his images had a tremendous influence on emerging notions of human sexuality in general, and masculinity in particular. His work presents affirmative images that have been accepted as positive role models for multiple generations and Tom of Finland Foundation carries on his legacy today (www.tomoffinlandfoundation.org).

TOM’s Casino, a product of Lunas Entertainment Ltd, is supportive of Tom of Finland Foundation, and a portion of the casino’s proceeds will go to assisting in furthering its goals. The Foundation’s collection holds the world’s largest repository of erotic art, including a permanent collection of 1,500 original works by Tom of Finland, 2,000 works by other artists and archives of more than 100,000 images, documents and other pieces of art, all needing maintenance, some needing restoration. “Through TOM’s Casino, we can communicate globally the freedom for which Tom of Finland stands. As a non profit foundation, we are also involved with other charitable programs, which will benefit”, Durk Dehner says. TOM’s Casino will launch in eleven countries all over the world including: Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom.

“At Lunas Entertainment, we are committed to do our part in supporting humanity, LGBT equality, communities and projects all over the world”, says Tom Kåhre, CEO of Lunas Entertaiment. “In addition to supporting Tom of Finland Foundation and its commitment to the erotic arts, we aim to find effective ways of supporting other local LGBT programming.” Kåhre invites all LGBT associations and organizations in the countries where we are active, to send their proposals of their charitable initiatives to TOM’s Casino at charity @ tomscasino . com

Lunas Entertainment Ltd is a European online gaming company based in Malta, and is proud to be part of a global and inclusive community.

ABOUT TOM OF FINLAND

Tom of Finland, born Touko Laaksonen in 1920, ignited a cultural movement with his iconic homoerotic art, which made its US debut in the Spring 1957 issue of the pioneering all-male

magazine Physique Pictorial. He is considered and respected as one of the most influential artists of the last century – with works part of permanent collections in museums around the world – and his TOM’s Men are instantly recognizable and remain a key component of popular culture.

His body of work includes 4,500+ works of art mostly featuring men with larger than life sexual traits – square jaws, bulging muscles – wearing tight or scant clothing and positioned in a variety of

hyper-masculine scenarios. Tom of Finland is an important part of art history and pop culture because of its forwardthinking, raw and honest depiction of homosexuality with an unabashed and confident air.

ABOUT TOM OF FINLAND FOUNDATION

In 1984, Tom of Finland Foundation, a nonprofit organization, was established by Durk Dehner and his friend Touko Laaksonen a.k.a. Tom of Finland. As Tom had established worldwide recognition as the master of homoerotic art, the Foundation’s original purpose was to preserve his vast catalogue of work. Several years later the scope was widened to offer a safe haven for all erotic art in response to rampant discrimination against art that portrayed sexual behavior or generated a sexual response. Today the Foundation continues in its efforts of educating the public as to the cultural merits of erotic art and in promoting healthier, more tolerant attitudes about sexuality.
