Straight men on the low chat site Sexflame chat sites
Rapping about homothugs is a way for him to save lives rather than sermonize.
If there’s a DL community today, it’s the result of this sort of brazen marketing.
One of the models I work with is not hard, he’s not soft, he’s not effeminate, he’s not thuggish.
He likes men, he likes women, he’s about to have a daughter, loves to be fucked, and plays with dildos.
This panic has created a whole industry of “experts” dishing out advice to straight women who want the real deal on what their men are doing behind closed doors. “Being on the DL is being in the closet about your sexual feelings for the same sex,” King informed me in a recent interview.
“When I hear the word ‘closet,’ I think it means to hide being gay and in the gay lifestyle.” But the “PRIDE ON THE DL” party betrayed these assumptions.
Nobody let the dawgs out that night at Brooklyn Sensation.
It was an invitation to a hip-hop party for men of color, called Brooklyn Sensation.
In the wake of parties like Courvoisier Urban Thug Night, this ambition has become more like an ironic pose.
Guys who call themselves incognitos, playas, real nikkas, thug bottoms, and pretty thugs fill online chat rooms to maximum capacity. Nicholson finds such a contradiction hard to swallow.
In the late 1980s, a group called A1Black Elite launched Bla-tino, a hugely popular series of sex parties thrown in secluded locations across the East Coast.
Bla-tino’s street-promo strategy targeted men who wouldn’t otherwise fraternize at gay-identified clubs: “ruffnecks, barriboyboyz, thugs, popichulos, shortys, manchismos, brolic mutherfuckers, ‘n your neighbor.” The door policy rejected fats, femmes, and anyone sporting an “AIDS look.” Implicit in this rhetoric was the fear of effeminacy, a terror that bubbles under the surface of epithets like faggot.
This intense ambivalence about the visible signs of gayness is part and parcel of DL culture.
