‘I Don’t Know What Love Is…’


A lovely trio here. Actually four of them, if you look very closely. Friends? Or more…?


A really thought-provoking comment from a regular correspondent (‘Platinumboy’) on yesterday’s post on ‘Couples‘. ‘I don’t know what love is… I don’t know if anybody really loved me…’

That’s really sad, and set us thinking. Maybe, P’boy, you just didn’t recognise that love?


Maybe me  publishing images of guys making out with one another didn’t help (although you said that the post was real nice’… thanks for that): in which case:




I assume that it’s guys… Maybe it’s the chat-up line?


If I’ve got it wrong, I apologise. But I sure appreciate your comments – not least the very thoughtful ones on the subject of enduring segregationalism in the southern USA, and my son’s small part in trying to overcome it (several recent posts).

Our love, as I am always saying, came on as a bit of a surprise (to me) and I was eventually moved to document it here:

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

After which untimely reminder, let me add a few more images of guys together, not ‘loving’ (necessarily) but sharing. Sharing something – sharing anything, P-boy… get involved in something and the right person will come along! It doesn’t have to be sport, but we’ll start there:






Even ballet!


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...
