A small celebration of loving gay couples in this post, which I must therefore dedicate to my very special partner who quite fortuitously featured in a crossword clue in a UK newspaper this week:

‘Cumbrian lad as street trader’ – The paper gives the answer as (6 then 3 letters) but, if you have read this blog diligently, or better, the books…

The first part...Loving the Boy: ISBN 978-1-907732-30-0

The Power of Love: ISBN 978-1-907732-41-6

Against All Odds: ISBN 978-1-908645-35-7

…then you will know well enough that four letters will suffice!

As a further clue… he has a curious fascination for felines…


…although he is more likely to be found with his kit off in the gym rather than sitting on top of a rock.

So today I simply feature images of loving couples of the gay persuasion, wishing all of you in such a relationship the very best of love and for those of you hoping… never give up, for the right guy will surely show up! And when he does, you’ll know.




An underwater hug…why not?













Finally, if at the moment you look into your mirror and see only yourself instead of the perfect partner, everything comes to he who waits… as the final ‘take’ on the mirror theme shows: I dedicate this one to my own perfect partner (who knows why) and to a couple of recently joined followers with rather obviously expressed kitten instincts – welcome, one and all!

‘Well, what do you want to be when YOU grow up?’




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...

    This was very nice. I don’t know what love is. I don’t really know if anybody every really loved me or if anybody ever really will love me. It is nice to see, however.
