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 ***

Two By Two

Today we celebrate more twosomes – both loving (as left and in the other 13 new images added to the Caring and Sharing page (click here)); and twosomes just having fun together (sometimes even in a ‘fitness/acrobatic’ sort of way!) – below in this post. Enjoy:

(Yep, that one is from the 1940s!)

(OK, they’re just in the bathroom together. But hey look pretty fit to me)

(That’s Andrey :  next we can see his partner working a little harder – and Andrey’s triceps a little more clearly…)

And 3 shots from the Chelyabinsk gym squad:

…but maybe these two aren’t having so much fun…??!!

Abs Under Test

Possibly ‘off topic’, and probably not advised, I’ve posted a collection of ‘gut-punching’ pictures on the Wrestling Gallery #1 page (click here). A few of them come from the ‘Fighting Kids’ website from South Africa (acknowledged in the above image: this is a pay site (and rather expensive) featuring wrestling, foot fighting (yes!) etc using white RSA kids, whom I hope get well paid because the site is not cheap. Some of their videos are to be found on Facebook, SendVid and other sites.

For those who prefer to admire abs which are not under attack, here you go:

Sit-ups or crunchies, anyone?

“That’s the way to do it!”

No gut punching, but a fit young man featured here:

All purchases support the site! Click on the cover or enquire at gymacrobat.co.uk, where you can also obtain three earlier books whose publisher went bust…

Perfect for a gay-friendly read on the beach.

Wrestlers, Gymnasts, Acrobats…

…it’s all here!

Introduced by the Kalutskikh brothers with a friend, above, I have just added 40 new gymnast pictures and 28 new wrestling pictures to the separate pages (Gymnasts Gallery 1) (Wrestling Gallery 1) – GO EXPLORE – and, to whet your appetite, I am putting a few ‘fun’ acrobatics pictures (and ‘strength’ moves) in this post. Go explore other (older) pages too (index at top of page) as well as the zillions of previous posts for more of the same!

Enjoy the site, then please consider buying one or more of these – it will all help to keep the site alive!

The first three books cover acrobatics, gay love, circus, adventure… the fourth is a novel about an outcast gay lad who sets off alone into an unfamiliar world in search of his future. ALL OF THEM CAN BE OBTAINED BY CONTACTING ME AT gymacrobat@gmail.com IN THE FIRST INSTANCE!!

Please DO NOT click on any link to Melrose Books for the first three because they have gone bust and I won’t get any royalty… once again, we can mail all over the world from gymacrobat@gmail.com

Now go enjoy the site!

More Gymnasts! More Handstands! More Stuff!

53302411_359243961351222_8551326697702876308_nAs recently promised, I have uploaded 25 images of the boys in Andrey Telitsyn’s gym in Chelyabinsk on the Gymnastics Gallery #1 page. Then there are 16 new handstands to be found at Handstand Central.Yes – Chelyabinsk again, for the first one (repeated here!).

Then, if that’s not enough, there are ten additional Gently Gay images to be found on that page!

But I’m not done yet! Since flexibility is all part of gymnastics (along with strength [especially handstands] and endurance), we’ll continue here with 20 extremely flexible guys (including a few ballerinos for those who enjoy that sort of thing).

These Boys Got What They Wanted!

…and are proud to share it with us!

Some inspiration here! Enjoy:

That hard work in the gym pays off…

Looks like he got a bit sweaty in the process, too.

That’s model Alam Wernik

As you’re half-way through this post, you’re likely going to carry on scrolling down and, hopefully, explore all the older posts and the separate pages featuring fit guys in various activities (wrestling, gymnastics, acrobatics, training, etc. etc. as well a gentle [non-porn] exploration of the gay lifestyle). Enjoy.

I’d just like to take a moment of your time to widen the scope of your adventure, by promoting four of my books which cover similar things. Words on a page can be just as much fun as pictures on a screen. The best way in is this one:

…orphaned gay Native American boy, friendless and outcast, sets off in search of his future. Maybe that could be rediscovering his gay love: maybe it is something else altogether. He has a mischievous spirit guide to help him – sometimes prairie dog, sometimes neo-wolf, with a cute line in repartee… could be a bit of a tear-jerker. Clicking on the cover gives a link, but you can also get it direct from me by e-mailing gymacrobat@gmail.com

There are three earlier (and gayer) books, forming a trilogy about finding gay love, enjoying sport, circus and performance, and getting into trouble. These are now ONLY available direct from me because their publisher went into liquidation. Large discounts on the published price available, and I can get them mailed anywhere in the world. So, once again, gymacrobat@gmail.com – it all helps to keep these pages up and running.

Please support us!

And now, back to the boys with something of their own to show off about…

‘Wanna show off your body?’

Sure. Why don’t go and stand in front of a graffiti-ed rusty old train truck and pull my pants down while you take the picture…?’

If you must go down to the train tracks to have your muscle pic taken, I suggest that you keep a good lookout…

Back up against a mirror is probably safer, and more fun for us… we get to see a bit more!
