LGBT+ online gamers to get physical at this year’s Pride in London

TOM’s Casino on-board as an official sponsor of Pride in London 2016.

TOM’s Casino, the world’s only online LGBT+ gaming community, is honored to announce that it will be joining this month’s Pride festival in London as an official sponsor.

The gaming site, which launched earlier this year as the first of its kind, and designed with the LGBT+ community in mind, will be hitting the streets of London for the first time ever at this year’s Pride celebrations in Trafalgar Square on June 25th and the Picnic in the Park music festival on June 26th.

“We are extremely proud to be part of Pride in London 2016,” says Tom Kåhre, CEO of Lunas Entertaiment, the company behind the creation of TOM’s Casino. “At Lunas, we are deeply committed to do our part in supporting humanity, LGBT equality, and related communities and projects all over the world.” 

Kåhre and TOM’s Casino are continuously looking to connect with UK-based LGBT non-profits to cooperate on common charitable goals.  “We invite humanitarian and LGBT+ associations and organizations in all of our 11 active countries to send suggestions and proposals to for consideration“, Kåhre says.

This year, Pride in London invites London’s LGBT+ community and its fellow allies to stand together to celebrate and work for the extension of the freedom for people everywhere with #nofilter – the theme of its 2016 campaign. The extended Pride Festival in London will take place between 10 and 26 June.

After London, TOM’s Casino’s involvement with this year’s event follows its sponsorship of Capital Pride festival in Ottawa, Canada, which takes place in August and will see the Canadian LGBT+ community celebrate the 31st anniversary of the event.

Tom of Finland Foundation

Tom of Finland Foundation is a non-profit organization which was established by Durk Dehner and his friend Touko Laaksonen a.k.a. Tom of Finland in 1984. 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. 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  to the cultural merits of erotic art in promoting healthier and more tolerant attitudes about sexuality. / Media enquiries / Charitable proposals / CEO Tom Kåhre
