About the Show:
The DL Chronicles tells the stories of men of color who by consequence and by choice, live sexually duplicitous and secret lifestyles. Narrated by aspiring journalist, Chadwick Williams, as he pursues research while authoring a book about MSM (Men who Sleep with Men) aka The Down Low, we enter into a provocative and intriguing world of sexual discovery, denial, betrayal, love and loss.
From a highly desired successful executive to the street corner hustler, from the happily married father of two, to the college athletes first love, each episode will delve into the different lives and experiences of DL Men of color across social, cultural, and economic boundaries
The series awarded the 2008 GLAAD Media Award in the category of "Outstanding Television Movie or Mini-Series," is the first cable television show to center on the "DL" phenomenon in the gay community. The DL (short for "down-low") refers to straight men of color who live their everyday lives as heterosexuals, often married to women, but engage in discreet gay sex and gay relationships on the periphery.
The show was created by Quincy Lenear and Deondray Gossett.
"Not only sexy and provocative, but also offers a socially-conscious insight into the lines between sexuality and perceived socially acceptable behavior within the African-American community. It provides an unapologetic view of intimacy between men of color and explores these scintillating stories with honesty and integrity." here!TV Network
