Welcome to the Blog!

Tony Cavanagh welcomes you to his world of books (first and foremost!) and to the things he loves best on the other pages here. After six blogging years, I’m having something of a reorganisation and culling many old posts and associated images to make room for new things. This blog home page offers more information about my books and will also signpost additions to the ‘Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics‘ pages (see Index) and also to the ‘Gay Expression‘ page – these being the themes which run through my first three books. Purchasing books helps to support the blog, and most readers rate them well!

Before we get there, there is a fourth book published October 2017 and a fifth half completed. So let’s start with the most recent offering:

A ‘reluctantly’ gay boy, cast out of his community for discovering his sexuality… can he find the true meaning of his life and his true love, or does fate have more s*** in store for him? Best classified as ‘Romantic Fiction’, I think, the book explores Native American beliefs as his shape-shifting ‘spirit guide’ struggles to make things right for him. Darker influences are also at work, however, and his life holds many surprises and disappointments before the final dénouement. Click on the cover for a link to buy direct, and support this blog… e-versions of all the books are also available. And, if  you must, because they don’t pay the author much, there is Amazon…

Three earlier books, written in the first person, chart the life and times of a British teen relocated to the USA who quickly finds another like-minded exiled Brit with whom he shares a love of acrobatic sports and, very shortly after, with whom he shares his gay love. Surrounded by a caring group of sporting (and mainly gay) friends, things nevertheless start to go badly wrong and there are clearly people around who do not wish them well. They discover a life as a touring show… and also a future life as gay dads, but there is much else waiting in store for them before they can be ‘happy ever after’…

Notice too that these covers combine locations of the stories combined with acrobatic images and some Chinese characters: the significance of these emerges early in the first book.


So there we are – welcome. Scroll down for the latest posts, or cross to the other pages for Fitness, Acrobatic and Gymnastics images –  a lifestyle we enthusiastically support – or to Gay Expression for  occasional musings and images related to the gay lifestyle. You will not find porn here.

This blog is also for guys who admire other guys who put real effort into their physical development. On that ‘fitness’ page I encourage you to think how good the fitness lifestyle is for you. The rules are simple:

  1. Make an effort to improve your own fitness this year (you’re NEVER too old);
  2. Enjoy the pictures (and comment please on what you see, and feel free to ‘FOLLOW’);
  3. Buy a book (preferably, all of them) to support the continuation of the blog!

AND: you can even try combining the reading with your workout!

The blog is essentially G-rated; the earlier books get a little explicit from time to time about gay guys doing what gay guys do – you don’t have to be gay to enjoy them – just be gay-friendly. 

And now, as they used to say on the old TV game shows: “Come on Down!”⇓ or alternatively Sideways (to the other pages!)

*** Many pictures  on all of the pages… like the one on the left illustrating what we love to do… will sticky-2-readenlarge if you click on them ***

‘Fighters’… a rather vague term which includes wrestlers posing in their wrestling hall and various other gym-based activities. It also includes wrestling – and today I have posted a whole load of additional FIGHTING KIDS pix on the Wrestling Gallery #1 page (click here) as this example on the left shows.

Meanwhile, let’s see what else I can find in my store of images awaiting posting here!

Now then: two updates to Wrestling Gallery #1 page in one day. After the “fighting kids”, and therefore above them on the page, enjoy some more wrestling pix! A grand total (both collections) of 58 wrestle pix, so go explore!

Finally: ‘Fighters’ = ‘Soldiers’??

Putting on a Show

Some acrobatic and aerialist performances…

(That’s an odd capture – even we’re not quite sure what they are doing but obviously it is mid-move!)

(Interesting training venue…?)

Hot (with Update Alert!!)

Hot and strong… enjoying the sun! That time of year for great-looking boys to show off what they have built!

What’s more, I’ve updated the other pages with some great gymnasts (click here), a few wrestlers (click here), some acrobatic handstand dudes (click here) as well as some gay cuddles (click here) and a few gently-gay images as well (click here). And, if you need still more hotness, keep scrolling down!!

You can never get too much sun! Enjoy it while it lasts!

Boys Who Have…

…clearly… put in the hours / done the work / seen the results!!

(I know you guys need to check the image on your screen – but it would good to see a smiling face as well. No such luck with the next one either!)

Tell you what – maybe get some professional help…

Hmmm. Those studio backgrounds are a bit boring though. Let’s try something else!

Can’t understand that particular background! Never mind…

Ah! The messy bedroom background. Better than the loo, I suppose. And at least he didn’t hide behind the camera! The next one is probably a selfie too, but one that works…

The right diet helps…

The key, though, is the weights…


…or a creative alternative…

OK. 40 great guys – enough for today I hope.

Check out all the other pages on this site for more fitness, athletic guys and a little gayness on the side.

You could do worse than start with this:

My (fourth) modest literary effort, whose sales go to support this blog. Click on the cover, or mail me gymacrobat@gmail.com for discounted copies mailed anywhere in the world! (Except maybe South Africa, where a consignment seems to have locked in a warehouse in J’burg for six months… – we’re on the case…)

Also updated: 28 handstands on the HANDSTAND CENTRAL GALLERY #1 page (click here)! Do explore ALL the pages in the index at the top of this blog page! And now, on with the Speedo boys:

Finally, it’s goodbye from him and, for today, goodbye from me!

A Chance to Cool Down

It has been a bit hot in Europe recently. Perhaps time to cool off?

We never hit 40C+ here, but it was still pretty hot. Certainly glad of opportunities to cool off. Since we are nearer to next Christmas than last Christmas, here are 28 images of guys (suitably shirtless) enjoying themselves in the snow and ice! Or, at least, we like to think that they are…

Two Of Each…

Two of each… acrobats (as here, Jack Atherton beneath, not sure who on top)), and 28 new images of gay couples CARING AND SHARING on the separate page that celebrates gay love (click here). As I constantly try and remind everyone, there are numerous pages on this site now covering acrobatic sports, gentle gay themes (no porn) and so forth. Go explore.

Now lets re-join our acrobatic pairs:

(OK, the top there is a girl, but we’ll let that pass… especially as the next partner is a dog…)

Let’s finish with an oldie!
