7% of the population will understand immediately the affection that two guys can have for one another. Hopefully, a significant proportion of the remainder will at least understand it and accept it: even if they are straight, there’s a cameraderie between guys in a group which can operate alongside a ‘normal’ straight relationship…


But it’s really the two-guy thing that I’ve been thinking about today. Chums, hanging out, no girls in either case to get in the way…


…enjoying each other’s company, each other’s ‘maleness’…


Not necessarily LOVE, as such, although it might be…



Sometimes there’s that look in the eyes that says there’s something special…

the look

…a particular closeness develops…


You seek out more things that involve being even nearer to him…


Eventually, that moment comes over you…


…you can’t resist any opportunity…


…and finally, you declare to one another your true feelings…


…and there you have it. Extreme affection… LOVE.

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
