Emoji: Tom of Finland
Boy, have times changed since Tom of Finland (Touko Laaksonen, 1920–1991) first published his homoerotic drawings in the 1950s. The artist made, and continues to make, a significant contribution to the advancement of human rights, advocating for tolerance, respect and freedom. Image © Tom of Finland Foundation
