Based on the express "keeping it on the down low," the term "downlowing" refers to a casual, and at the same time, secret, homosexual relationship, typically between black or latino men in small social gatherings - such as card games. Many of the men who participate in "downlowing" do not consider themselves gay, and many even have families.
Felix invited me to play dominoes with him and the boys this weekend, but I was told there's a lot of downlowing going on at those games, so I declined.
