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 ***

Performers and Other Updates

Speaking as a performer who is out of the show with a sprained finger and swollen hand after a mis-timed catch (ouch!), I am using my down time to update some of the other pages:

Ten new handstand images at Handstand Central Gallery 1

Ten new loving (gay) couples at Caring and Sharing

Ten new images of guys enjoying the feel of air against skin, in the gym and elsewhere: Gently Gay

Don’t forget to explore the older separate pages on this site two (index near the top of the page).

And now, as we’re doing acrobatic performance, here in this post are a load more artists at work or training, for you to enjoy: 25 pixs in total!

Four or More…

…fit young guys together usually makes for some good pictures!

Musclejocks, swimmers, sports teams posing for the album, or just guys clowning around being mates! 25 to enjoy (I hope) here.

Boys and Water

Linking this theme with our three special pages covering gay tenderness in various ways (not porn) – Gay Expression Caring and Sharing and Gently Gay – we finish with this with Dion and Sabastian in the pool:

You will find more wet boys in the many previous blog posts, and acres of fit young men doing various sports including shirtless barefoot wrestling in these three pages: Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics #1, Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics #2, Wrestling Gallery #1 and Handstand Central Gallery #1

After all that, I ask a small favour in turn. Consider purchasing my books, maybe starting with this:

Lonely gay lad orphaned and in search of a future (and, maybe, love). that horse in the picture is important! Click on the cover or contact me at gymacrobat@gmail.com, from where I can provide discounted copies of three earlier books covering gay love, acrobatic sports, circus and (mis)adventures:

Welcome to ‘Handstand Central’

I just uploaded the new page “Handstand Central Gallery 1” (click here) where we shall feature the art of the handbalancer (various forms, and not all as good as some professionals might expect!)… guys only of course, almost always shirtless and allowing other balance forms on the hands including Russian Holds, Planches and so forth. 40 pictures so far. Gymnasts performing in their gyms will appear sparately (shortly) on a new dedicated Gynastics page (patience, please). There will always be a blog post to announce when new things are added to the supplementary pages.

There are many other handstand images in the zillions of existing blog posts and, of course, in the two Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics pages (click on one of these numbers) (1) (2)… but nothing new will be added there as they are already very large.


Here’s a question to get you started: is this a genuine hand balance on the slack wire or just a lucky shot on the part of the photographer? Let me know what you think by commenting, or on gymacrobat@gmail.com

More Good Work

Mainly posed pictures this time, and away from the gym.

Good Work(out)

Some boys who have clearly worked hard for what they have achieved so far, and celebrating in the place they most want to be. 32 images in all. Enjoy!

A great outdoor setting to finish up this set:

Shirtless Wrestling? Look No Further…

Enjoy these lads, and 100 more wrestling pictures (for starters!) on the newly created WRESTLING GALLERY #1 (Click here). You will not find much ‘high-school’ wrestling there… rather submission, shirtless, and barefoot where I can find them. Occasionally some surprises.

There will be some occasional nude wrestling too (not yet) but nothing ‘porn’ style – just guys having fun while wearing nothing they don’t need to. As in that second picture, material from specific wrestling sites, acknowledged more fully on the page.

Once again, I remind you that I have already added some new pages covering gay themes and there is a lot more on general fitness, gymnastics and acrobatics with more to follow.

So, check out the index at the top of the page, and away you go!

By way of a change, a short selection of a dozen curious pictures – all sports and fitness related in some way, but somewhat different from what is normally posted in this blog or found on the associated pages.

Before you ask, “I don’t know”. The karate boys come from a short collection called ‘Underwater Sports’, only one of which involves actual swimmers, but I forgotten where I long ago found them. This one is definitely the best. I hope that you enjoy them and what follows: the next one isn’t exactly fitness, but I include it for the extremely odd behaviour of the guy holding the camera and the camera angle…

I first thought that the next one was some kind of double act, but I think it is just a coincidence how it worked out:

This next one is simply the end of a tough triathlon, but this shot from friend Pavl Rycl in the Czech republic just kind of catches our eye:

Another ‘chance’ (?) encounter during training:


Don’t forget to explore the new pages (as well as the older ones) alongside this blog: just go to tonycavanagh.com and click on the index entries!

Oh, and maybe a little plug for the latest novel (lonely outcast orphaned gay boy seeks out the wider world and his lost love…):

…whilst the earlier three can be obtained by contacting me directly at gymacrobat@gmail.com

‘Caring and Sharing’ Page Launched

Now I’ve launched the CARING AND SHARING page (Click here) with 39 couples enjoying life together like those two lads above. Don’t forget that the earlier GAY EXPRESSION page (Click here) contains many more – but that one will not be extended. There is also the new GENTLY GAY page launched yesterday (Click here) with less intimate but essentially gay stuff to enjoy.

More to come, and also the two existing but ‘full’ FITNESS ACROBATICS AND GYMNASTICS pages (1) (2) to explore. Not forgetting loads and loads of images in the zillions of older blog posts!

And now, I’ll extend this post a little with some more pairs of guys – less gay themed but still enjoying stuff together…

A trio of beach couples next… where better? … … …

…Only one place better…

Ah! The gym. Time for a workout for ourselves, I think. It’s where all fit lads should want to be. So ‘Bye for now!’

Gently Gay Launched

As recently promised, the first of the new pages is available – GENTLY GAYClick Here – a successor to the now ‘full’ GAY EXPRESSIONClick Here.

I have opened it with a short gay kickboxing sequence plus three other images which rest better there than in a blog post which might, when copied across to my Tumblr, excite their adult-content bots!

All additions to separate pages – and the arrival of additional pages – will be accompanied by a blog post announcement and usually (as here) a sample image. Enjoy.

And now, since I’m here, let me add a few random “fit ‘not-necessarily-gay’ lad” pictures to whet your appetite!

I think you get the idea.
