NoMoreDownLow.TV is a groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind lifestyle and entertainment series dedicated to dispelling myths and stereotypes about same gender-loving people in the African American community.
On National Coming Out Day, October 11, 2010, NoMoreDownLow.TV launched its premiere episode featuring interviews with Wanda Sykes, Wilson Cruz, photographer Duane Cramer, among other members of the African American lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
Earnest Winborne, executive producer of NoMoreDownLow.TV, said he named the series “No More Down Low” as a response to the negative implications the “down low” had on the black gay community. The phrase “down low” was introduced to a mainstream audience by J.L. King through his best-selling book “On the Down Low: A Journey into the Lives of ‘Straight’ Black Men Who Sleep With Men.” In 2004, King appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and soon the “down low” became a hot topic in the media and in the black community.
“Our show will put a real face on same gender loving people who are traditionally overlooked by the mainstream media. We’ll feature people who are open and honest about who they are and those who are contributing to their communities in the fields of entertainment, sports, politics, health, music, and social activism,” Winborne added.
NoMoreDownLow.TV segments are told from an African American LGBT point of view. It will show that you can live a successful life – out of the closet – at work, at home and even in a church.
