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 stereotypically 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. Featuring candid interviews with Dan Savage, David Sedaris, Margaret Cho, George Takei, Tim Gunn, and more, Do I Sound Gay? is a refreshingly frank, thoroughly entertaining look at a taboo topic.
