More on Gay Childcare!

Sorry if this is boring, but the latest statistics from my home country (UK) are interesting, given the recent discussions with the father of one of my 9yo training boys.

Today’s Gallery Theme: Training Success


The first part...The second part...Just to recap, the guy was struggling to come to terms with me being gay and having Leo as a 14yo son. I think, at first, he thought that I had adopted him. As my readers will (should!) know by now – that is absolutely not the case: see the first two of my books!

The interesting statistic I mentioned is that, in the UK, 12% of adoptions are now by gay couples, with the majority of those being by males. This represents an extraordinary difference from here in the northern edge of the ‘Bible Belt’!


(Outdoors, in the privacy of your yard, training in your underpants. And why not? Don’t want to get a shirt sweaty for no reason!)

In reality, the lesbian couple who are the mothers of Leo and Jaymee more or less adopted us! We finally came together in one household a couple of years ago, sharing with a second gay couple and all linked in some way or other to the previous owner, Dave’s dad, who allowed his older son to set up the treasured training cabin with his newly-found gay friend Ivo. Neighbours and friends accept us either as what we are, or presume that the very large home is shared by two separate families and takes in lodgers!


Leo and Jaymee’s evident survival (and evident heterosexuality!) in this ‘den of iniquity’ seems to tick all the boxes that Alvin’s father needs, and he went so far as to apologise today for previously asking the question about the relationship between Leo and I. So all is well.


(So many pictures out here of boys staring down at their abs (and quads in this case) while lifting… if he would just stand up straight and smile at the camera…)

At least, I Think that all is well! Alvin and his twin friends are certainly throwing themselves into everything we push at them.

Let’s enjoy some more gym successes:











A bit of a show-off, that final guy. But who can blame him?Cover 3 Thumb



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...
