Do I Sound Gay? says
Funny and insightful, the new documentary "DO I SOUND GAY?" puts a face on deeper questions surrounding the intersections of social psychology and sexual orientation.

Setting a lighthearted tone, journalist-turned-filmmaker David Thorpe turns the camera on himself and his own personal quest to sound straight. The documentary surveys popular media, personal anecdotes, psychological theories, and speech science that tries to explain 'sounding gay' as a phenomenon.

Queer celebrities turn out to lend their opinions, including hilarious insights by Dan Savage, David Sedaris, George Takei, and others. Ultimately, the question becomes a search for the dark-matter-difference between being gay and being homosexual. For Thorpe, as both director and subject, the question becomes personal: why am I me?
