On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of Straight Black Men Who Sleep with Men by J.L. King

A bold expos of the controversial secret that has potentially dire consequences in many African American communities Delivering the first frank and thorough investigation of life on the down low (the DL), J. L. King exposes a closeted culture of sex between black men who lead straight lives. King explores his own past as a DL man, and the path that led him to let go of the lies and bring forth a message that can promote emotional healing and open discussions about relationships, sex, sexuality, and health in the black community. Providing a long-overdue wake-up call, J. L. King bravely puts the spotlight on a topic that has until now remained dangerously taboo. Drawn from hundreds of interviews, statistics, and the authors firsthand knowledge of DL behavior, On the Down Low reveals the warning signs African American women need to know. King also discusses the potential health consequences of having unprotected sex, as African American women represent an alarming 64 percent of new HIV infections. Volatile yet vital, On the Down Low is sure to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.
