I spent much of my time “debunking” these articles to my friends and colleagues, although the six months I spent hanging out with men on the DL from across the country made it clear to me that the Down Low itself was not a myth. The distinction is more than mere semantics—as I explain in the piece, black and Hispanic men saw the Down Low as one big party where white men (whether gay or closeted) were not usually welcome.

A recent national survey released by the CDC revealed that more Americans are identifying as bisexual than ever before.

Men of all races have long had secret sexual and romantic male relationships, complete with the usual accessories of a double life: lies, deception, and shame.

Here’s what they had to say: Rob (not his real name) is 46-years-old.

Of all the men interviewed, 6.2 percent of them said they had engaged in same-sex sexual activity at least once in their lifetime.

And of that 6.2 percent, 2.3 percent identified as straight.

Some said I had demonized black men, while others said I was “too understanding” of black men on the DL and hadn’t demonized them nearly enough.

Some said the piece exaggerated the link between men on the Down Low and the increasing rates of HIV infection among black men and women.
