Things have been going really well he talks about our future, we text everyday and always say goodnight and good morning. In that time he has called at my house numerous times after work and taken me for a meal a handful of times. I have never been to his home or met his family and after we sleep together he will go days without contact.
I ignore him for weeks at a time but he always sends me a text and I fall for it everytime. He is divorced with 2 teenage children and his relationship with his wife is very bitter. If you change everything about yourself to be desirable to men, are you really genuine?
Ok, we are all aware of the phenomenon of brothas “living on the down low” becoming widely known thanks to a black male exposing the truth on the Oprah Winfrey show and by writing a book about it.

And by him exposing the truth of the miserable secret society of men living on the down low, he recieved death threats and angry letters because those men wanted it to be a secret for all time.

I think or I hope first and foremost that [people] can understand and recognize that this is my memoir. It is a memoir of my life as a down-low man in the entertainment industry. I wrote it with the intention of hoping to provide a voice for not only myself but a lot of people who are in the industry or are struggling with their sexuality but also those people who are down-low men or gay men who are looking to get into the business and they can’t.
