i would love to see the movie when it comes out but i agree as well that the dl thing in movies is not all i wanna see. all of us ain't on the dl with wives and girlfriends at home.

I believe that this movie,like Noah's Arc,might feed into the stereotypes and "negative" images associated with the gay lifestyle. But,being the HUGE hag that I am,I know that these situations and characters exist(more than people would like to admit)and I look at this movie,Noah's Arc and all the recently released movies as pioneers/starts/stepping stones to other perspectives to come.
Sadly,stereotypes get people in the seats.

... being a physician myself and having dealt with other physicians biblically and non-biblically, all I can say is: you'd be surprised how many "bad decisions" are made despite education and better knowledge. this scenario is really not that unrealistic. sex and common sense just don't mix well.

great review - I'll mos def put this one on my list...

Rod thanks so much for the short roundUP. It was thoughtful to point us to what other bloggers think.

We missed your Noah this week. :(

finally someone else feels the way i do. those stats are so overstated. it's like dl guys are public enemy #1. forget the fact that women can cheat as well.

I date a Nurse Practitioner for a while, who never wanted to use a condom. It used to make me very angry. I think he thought because he was a big black top he was somehow invincible. Fool.

Does anyone remember the early mottos for AIDS awareness:

Silence=Death?

The DL=Death, too right?

These movies never give minorities the credit of actually disclosing his or her status. I read recently that 78% of HIV positive minorities disclose based on POZ magazine. So these statistics that are images of this movie seem to be way off. It seems as though a scare tactic alongside with the curiosity of what happens in this movie may in fact achieve the results that most movie directors go for......REVENUE.

I agree that the stereotype is what sells. Nevertheless, I found many people ask questions regarding scripts in movies. Its up the the gay community to set the records straight (no pun intended) referencing the lifestyle. The gay community is like any other community when it comes to values, beliefs, and self respect. I am proud of the new groundbreaking media. I wish all this exposure was around during the 70's and early 80's. I would have been less confused regarding the gay life. Now, after 23 years living openly gay, i am self assured and confident with whom I am. The truth will always set anyone free.

I think that while the statistics are alarming and may be inaccurate, they were necessary to educate the society about the fact that there are brothers out there who do live their lives like this. It also helps some of those men to realise the consequences of their actions not only for themselves but also for their partners. And this situation will continue until society realises that a black man being gay is not the worst thing that can happen to a family or a community but rather a black man being forced to live a lie and never knowing what it is to live his life honestly, completely and as a whole person is ten times worse than any stigma that a family might feel about their gay son.

I can't wait to see this film.

I don't care about the statistics. I care that men are lying about sleeping with other men. It's unfortunate that they are not "man" enough to let their female partner know that they sleep with men as well. If they did, maybe the HIV rate wouldn't be as high as it is. White men don't seem to have a problem with informing women that they are bisexual. It's not that the black community looks down on the gay men, it's the DL men that are ashame of what they're doing. It's the guilt that is inside of them. DO NOT blame it on the black community. Maybe I'm being bias because I don't agree with the gay lifestyle whether you're black or white. You're not born that way, you choose that lifestyle. God doesn't make mistakes...MAN does. It's like a drug addict kicking the habit. Even though they may crave it...you fight the feeling. It eventually goes away. Your mind is the devils playground. Everything starts with a thought...the more you think about it the more it grows. Homosexuality is about lust.
