Are you a Pinoy on the “Down Low”?
What is the “Down Low” or “DL”? According to Ramone Johnson of About.com:
Men who discreetly have sex with other men while in sexual relationships with women are said to be on the “down low” (or “DL” for short). Often these men do not consider themselves gay or bisexual and their female partners are not aware that they have sex with other men, thus the term “down low” or “in hiding”.
Is this term synonymous to “in the closet”? Or, are all closeted men on the down low?
Not all men in the closet are on the down low. However, most men on the down low are in the closet. Men on the down low are usually in heterosexual relationships while secretly engaging in sexual activity with other men.
Who here among my readers are “men in the down low”? Please raise your hand!
