Coming Up from the Down Low: The Journey to Acceptance, Healing, and Honest Love


Coming Up from the Down Low: The Journey to Acceptance, Healing, and Honest Love Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shining a Light on the Down Low.

J. L. King lived on the down low for years before he wrote On the Down Low, the controversial bestseller that revealed the secret subculture of men leading straight lives while secretly sleeping with other men. In Coming Up from the Down Low, King takes readers to the next level, answering the most common questions asked by the people hes met while traveling the country and reporting on this lifestyle. He provides more in-depth information about the men who live this way, dispels the most common myths, and addresses the most frequently asked question of all: What are the signs? But more than that, King tells of his own transformation over the last year, as hes moved into a more honest evaluation of his own life and the lives of other men like him.

Filled with fascinating stories from men who have lived on the down low and the women who have struggled through it with them, Coming Up from the Down Low is a vital call for greater love, tolerance, and forgiveness in our individual lives and within our communities.
