Journalist David Thorpe embarks on a hilarious and touching journey, confronting his anxiety about “sounding gay” by comprehensively exploring the linguistic, cultural and historical origins of the stereotype of the gay voice. 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. Drawing upon movie and television clips, the film traces a cultural history of the gay voice which places Thorpe’s self-consciousness in a broader context and illuminates the complexity at play.
"Incredibly thought-provoking and funny.... Should definitely be at the top of your 'to see' lists."
"Hilarious and touching movie which every single gay man (and woman) will so relate too."
The Gay UK
"While the film manages to address tough topics including homophobia, stigma and bullying, Thorpe's engaging on-screen presence and cheerful narration help the film strike a light, funny tone for the most part, and the film is consistently enjoyable."
