Gymnasts and Acrobats at Work and Play

Returning to our favourite subject matter! A 50-picture megapost for you.

In the next picture, the ‘point’ is the broken glass under the base’s back. That is easy-peasy stuff: the hard bit is holding the planche on top!

(Re)-Introducing my latest book – click on the cover for a link or order direct from

Then there are the three older books, best obtained direct from me by contacting since the original publisher has gone bust:





Now, on with the show (of strength and skill)…

Same boy chalking up his hands…

This next is interesting because each boy is holding a girl in high handstand – yet the photographer (or whoever posted the picture originally) has decided that girls are not welcome in our pictures!

So here are just the boys!



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...
