DO I SOUND GAY?

After a break-up with his boyfriend, journalist David Thorpe embarks on a hilarious and touching journey of self-discovery, confronting his anxiety about “sounding gay.” Enlisting acting coaches, linguists, friends, family, total strangers, and celebrities, he quickly learns that many people — both gay and straight — often wish for a different voice. In Thorpe’s feature-length documentary debut DO I SOUND GAY?, what starts as a personal journey becomes a chance to unpack layers of cultural baggage concerning sexuality, identity, and self-esteem.

From the Academy Award nominated producer of How to Survive a Plague DO I SOUND GAY? features comedian Margaret Cho, primetime Emmy winner Tim Gunn (Project Runway), acclaimed author David Sedaris, CNN’s Don Lemon and George Takei (Star Trek, The Apprentice).

What makes a voice “gay?”
A breakup with his boyfriend sets journalist David Thorpe on a quest to unravel a linguistic mystery. All his life, Thorpe, like many gay men, has felt self-conscious about his stereo-typically un-macho voice. But what are its origins? And why is there such a stigma attached to “sounding gay?” As Thorpe consults with everyone from speech therapists to public figures to total strangers, he unpacks complex cultural questions with wit, verve, and intelligence.

Do I Sound Gay? is a refreshingly frank, thoroughly entertaining look at a taboo topic.
