A phrase to describe secretive behavior, the “Down Low” emerged in the early 2000s to describe a group of seemingly heterosexual black men who have female partners but who also have sex with men. The phrase came about in an effort to explain the recent rise in HIV infections amongst heterosexual black women. At this point, it became necessary to question why attention was being given to these men if no true evidence backed up the claims being made. We will look into the main reasoning behind living a secretive lifestyle.We will also be discussing trending topics, recent headlines in the news, political news and celebrity news with our celebrity insider Dawson.
