I just got this email about the movie "Invisible" and it's about the highly talked about subject of Black men who are living heterosexual lives but also sleeping with men in secret.  Here is the link to the trailer.....tell me what you think.  :-\

Hey Blk....I don't think so.....Have you ever read the book "On the Down Low" by JL King....It kind of sounds like that, but I don't know much about the movie just yet......Did u watch the trailer?  Scary! :-\

no... how was it ? I read Invisible Life in undergrad though... I remember all of my male classmates protesting because it was required reading.. I heard about JL King...and saw him on Oprah..thought it was very strange for him to consider himself straight though..

Did u read the book I asked about.......

Girl that book made my stomache curl.....I couldn't believe that a man that has engaged in as much homosexual activity as he had could possibly consider himself to be straight either....That man is NOT straight!

Wow....what class was Invisible Life required for?  I've read all the E Lynn Harris books, but just as recreational reading to get away from British Lit....English major....Man am I glad that's over!

i caught that oprah too, and was bugged out like "how the f can you really justify not being a homosexual"

i also saw a movie on HBO, was def small budget independent that focused on a "down low" brother...the dude wanted to try and make it work b/c she was expecting, but in the end home girl said i just gotta let it go, du dun dun dunnnn
