Do You Sound Gay? This Documentary Tries to Answer That

Has anyone ever told you “You sound so gay”? Is there actually such a thing like a “gay way” to talk? Even if there was, should you be ashamed of it? Should you try to change it? Is it because of the persecution of homosexuals for so long that we feel embarrassed to “sound gay”? Can someone hate his/her own voice? This documentary, by director David Thorpe, explores all these questions and includes revealing interviews with Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Don Lemon, Dan Savage, David Sedarisand George Takei. And as Dan Savage asks, “What’s wrong with sounding like you are who you are?”
