Definition funny of Downes:
A person who identifies as homosexual, gay, bisexual, or queer. Frequently used within Filipino American and Asian American GLBT communities. (Origns: California? or Hawaii?)
"Are you downe?"
Derived from the definition of "downlow" which was taken from the African-American Community. Brought in by the Filipino/Asian-American Male & Female LGBT community. Reinvented into the word "DownE" with a capital "E" expressed during the hype of the raving/exstacy scene which began to popularize in the early 90's. Giving those who are on the "downlow" a more open environment (i.e. E-parties.) Those using the term "DownE" also used it to seperate themselves from society's stereotype of a Gay Asian Male, as well as Gay Asian Female. As a means of communication. The internet played a major role in the growth in popularity for the word "Downe." With websites such as Downelink.com, the definition of "downe" is constantly changing. A good thing or a bad thing, take it as you will. From my opinion, the definition can't be found on any dictionary. Define it for yourself. Whether it be just another term for being Gay, Lesbian, Etc. or make it mean more to you than just a label.
Do you remember the downe scene back in 96? Now thats taking it way back to it's roots.
A male or female, commonly of Asian decent (particularly Filipino) who IS out of the closet, but not necessarily OUT and OPEN, regarding their sexuality, tending to keep their homo/bi sexuality on the "down low" Most people classifying themselves as "downE" tend to do so out of avoidance of family-related, religion-related, culture-related, or society-related reasons, IE: Fearing persecution, or not quite being ready, or wanting to be, completely OUT in the OPEN.
the 3 types of Non-Heterosexual people: Out: completely open regarding sexuality, carefree, confident. Out people tend to be the sterotypical, flamboyant, but not always. In: in the closet, denying their bi/homosexuality to themselves and others when it is obvious that they are NOT heterosexual DownE: out of the closet, but still low key about their sexual orientation, not as obvious as OUT people, usually takes people longer to figure out which way downE people truly "swing"
Names vary. But one in particular stands out. Hates nicknames. Easy to love once you get past her amazing personality, glowing aura, and understanding ways. Could have anyone but didn't so i wouldn't be mad.
