Join Bridgemen in celebrating the arrival of a collection from the Tom of Finland Foundation! Tom of Finland’s art is known for its powerful images of men in control celebrating their sexuality in the day light and not hidden away in shame and darkness. He brought us gay images as heroic god like figures that have become a crucial historic part of the gay art world.
In this exhibition, we see a selection of source materials, which helped to serve as inspiration for some of his work. He combed a wide variety of resources from all over the world. Some examples include Norman Rockwell’s work in the Saturday Evening Post of nineteen forties, Bob Miser’s Physique Pictorial of the fifties and sixties, and porn magazines like Drummer in the eighties and nineties.

Get dirty to do good with the Bridgemen. Volunteers will work together on improvements of the Peter Claver Community Residence, a licensed care facility for formally homeless who are living with HIV/AIDS.
Bridgemen have been called upon to lend a hand with interior and exterior painting of this important facility. Not only do the residents appreciate the work Bridgemen will be doing, but they also appreciate the company! Please join us for this truly memorable service project.
John David is the point man for this project. If you have any issues finding us, call or text Michael at 415.987.5120.
