BET News Presents: "Down Low Exposed" Tuesday At 10 P.M. (ET/PT)
By BET.com Staff Writer
Posted March 23, 2006 -- The accusations exploded in the African-American community and ignited a wildfire of emotion and controversy – heterosexual Black men leading secret double-lives by having sex with other men
. BET News premieres its most controversial documentary ever in THE DOWN LOW EXPOSED, a probing look into the undercover world of men with wives or girlfriends who also secretly engage in sex with other men. THE DOWN LOW EXPOSED premieres Tuesday, March 28 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)
Atlanta-based author J. L. King first ignited the debate last year with his controversial tell-all book entitled On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of “Straight” Black Men Who Sleep with Men
. Since then, a firestorm has rained around the issue further fueled when the husband of best-selling author Terry McMillan
broke his own silence by admitting to his secret gay lifestyle.
BET News will examine this subject from a variety of important angles including sex among men in prison and its impact on the spread of HIV/AIDS, the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on the subject in the Black church, and the overall risk of HIV/AIDS that exists for the female partners of men who secretly partake in the “down low” lifestyle. McMillan also participates in what she says will be her last interview on the subject of her ex-husband who hid his gay lifestyle, and J. L. King revisits his inflammatory book as well as discusses his own life in the aftermath.
